Vintage "Faithful Friend" card

Happy Sunday!

Today I am sharing a vintage style friendship card.  The stamped image (JustRite's Rose Postcard Background Stamp) was colored using Distress Inks and Ranger's Waterbrush.  Stickles was applied to the leaves and Crackle applied to the roses.  (I beginning to realize that I have an addiction to Crackle.)
The bottom of the card front was die cut using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One.  Both the card base and image background were made from kraft card stock.  Distress inks (Old Paper and Vintage Photo) were applied along the edges.
The inside was stamped using Quietfire's Always Be My Friend stamp set:
Always Be My Friend, Set of 3 Stamps - Mounted
Another look at the outside.  
I totally forgot to mention this yesterday: Quietfire Design is having a sale!  Summary: Spellbinders are 30% off (except Becca Feeken dies) with free shipping on $70 minimum.  Decorative-scrapbook paper is 35% off.  Gotta love sales!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do hope you are having a good Sunday.
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
