Buddies blog challenge #1

So myself and my crafting best buddy have come up with an idea to challenge ourselves each week to use up our ever increasing stash. So each Saturday a theme will be set and we then post it to our blogs in the evening...........we are not allowed to show it to each other until it appears on our blogs.
So if you want to look at my buddies blog go Here
The theme I set for this week was YELLOW tones,
Heres my card

I have used yellow patterned paper that I stamped onto using the large script stamp from Stampin up. I then used spellbinders venetian accents masks, edge and matching tag. Finished with a clearly besotted word stamp "friend" as this one is for you maria. Hope you like it ive had great fun.
Have a superb Easter, big hugs xxx
