Spring Themed Friend Card

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post to share this card I made for my Mum to give to her best friend. They have been friends for 30 years hence the little 30 in the sun! 

I started out by cutting a shaped rectanged from a blue piece of card on my Cricut. I then cut a frame from cream cardstock that was the same size as the blue layer. The last thing I cut was my grass using some green cardstock. I used the Plantain Schoolbook cartridge for all three pieces.
I started out with my cut piece of Blue cardstock, I layered the grass onto the bottom and trimmed around the edges so it was flush to the blue cardstock. Next I adhered my cream frame over the top to hide the edges of the grass.
I had some die cut flower toppers in my stash so I used them up on this card. I thought the greens were a pretty close match. Next I adhered a butterfly topper that I also found in my stash. Once I had adhered it I thought it looked too plane so I got out my wire and beads to made a body and antenna for it.
I freehand cut a sun from some light yellow cardstock and then punched a circle from some darker yellow cardstock for the centre. I adhered the two pieces together and added a small 30 to the sunshine using gold peel offs. I adhered my sun to the top left corner of my panel using dimentional foam adhesive to finish off my panel.
I used a white cardbase and stamped my Friend greeting directly onto it using Encore Gold Metallic Ink. I added two pink rhinestones to either side of the sentiment to finish it off.
I adhered my panel to the card to finish the card.
