A friend is a present you give yourself

Happy Wednesday!

The Graphic 45 October challenge is to make a project using their Typography collection.  A great excuse to play with my new paper pad!

I chose the main focus to be the three ladies with the sentiment "A friend is a present you give yourself".  I wanted to give the card a playful vintage type theme so I added a pinwheel with a wind flourish and used the circle from JustRite Spellbinders die Lacey Tiers.  The idea behind using the circle was to make it look like the front of an old time bicycle with the large front wheel.  Flowers were placed along the bottom for the subtle appearance of riding through a garden.  Perhaps that is totally missed on the card but that is what I was trying for!

Also used on the card was Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles for the base and Sizzix Flourishes for the wind.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a happy Wednesday!
