The Gift..........for a special friend....

Hello all you lovelies did you all have a enjoyable weekend? I am so sorry for being so late today I've had a really bad day.....lets just say if someone says goverment cut backs once more I will scream!!! My daughter leaves school this year but unfortunately she has been forgotten about by the authority & now they running out of time to find a day centre that has the appropriate nurses to be able to care for her... To be honest its typical but never mind you dont need to hear my moaning.
My card today I have done for my best friend she is having a roughty toughty time at the mo & I just want to remind her I'm always there for her.......I have made a sentiment for her card on the comp but my printer has run out of ink so I will put the sentiment on tomorrow.
My friend is like me & loves Angels she also loves black & white or black & cream, so I've gone mono which is my fave....

This is 'The Gift' which I thought was perfect for my friend as she really is my gift....we have been thru some stuff together & we still come through smiling. I think its cus we are both as crazy & nuts as each other lol.

She is coloured with Copics C7, C5, C3 & C1. I've also added silver stickles, black stickles & stardust stickles & her dress I scattered a slight dusting of glitter. The flower I made my self with lace & a button from my stash.

The silver charm & chain I got from my jewellery stash. The charm is a love heart with 'Friend' written on it.

The black rose in the corner I added stickles to. I attached 2 ribbons across the middle the bottom one is a gold toned organza ribbon & the top one is a black velvet ribbon. They are both from Crafty Ribbons who do both type of seam binding now, the modern & the vintage.

The paper I used is 8x8 La Creme Stack which you can get from Crafty Emma's & she has this on special at the minute. Its gorgeous paper the black on the top layer is gorgeous flocking. I have a also decorated the inside to compliment the front. The gems are from my stash & of course the beautiful stamp is from
 Crafts & Me. Pop yourself over to see the new releases Teresa has in & dont forget if you register for a newsletter you will receive 10% off new know what that means for what you save you could buy another stamp lol.
Take care everyone & thank you so much for popping by to look at my card I really appreciate it.
