True Friends

Hi, guys!  Hope your day is going well.  Today I am sharing a card I made for my husband's friend Mike. When my hubby and I got married, he had two best men.  Mike was one of them.   I enjoy making cards for Mike, as he always seems to enjoy receiving them. He is very artistic and so I am touched when I hear how he enjoys them.

Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts
Paper: Stampin' Up
Ink: Distress Inks
Misc.: Ribbon, Perfect Pearls (Metalics)

For this card,  I used various colors of distress inks and then used quite a few metallic Perfect Pearl Mists. It really gave it a cool shine and metallic look.  By using the mist with the distress inks, I was able to get them to blend nicely together.

Here's wishing Mike all the best this year!  We consider him a gift each and every day!

Until next time!
