MC Apr/12 - My Friend HB

Well I've been playing with all my new toys... The background was made with the sticky plastic covering from my new laptop. I thought it would make a great stencil, and I was right...(and I can re-use it again) but using my new Dylusions Ink Spray also helped - loving them and the colors... Then there is a challenge to use black, so I used it as the solid part of the butterfly body and made it just POP... It's a top fold card and you know how I hate making them, but had no choice because of the size of  the "friend" word. But I'm happy with the card.

I'm using one of the 10 tiny sentiments by Quietfire Design
