Make It Monday #23: Pockets with Edger Dies

I'm back with another Make It Monday challenge with PTI.  What a great concept that Dawn came up with.  It was a lot of fun making this card.  I used a color combo that I've had in my mind for a while.  I really like it together; Kraft, Melon Berry and Royal Velvet.

I used so many dies to make this card!  Mat Stack 1, Edgers 1, Tiny Tags, and Beautiful Blooms II #1 and #3.

I used the All About You stamp set, as well as Faux Ribbon for the "friends always" sentiment, Polka Dot Basics, and the tiny flourishes on the Mat Stack came from Calendar Basics.

I have plans to send this to a dear friend who has been struggling with an illness for over a year now.  She just announced to her closest friends and family that she will not be accepting any invitations to social events at least until the end of the year so she can focus on her health.  I told her quickly via email how I will be here when she is ready.  So, I wanted to send her a special card to let her know even though we haven't seen each other in quite a while, I'm still thinking of her.  I hope you all like it!

Oh yeah...SO excited about my new camera!  I just got a Nikon D3100 SLR and I LOVE that I can finally get some IN FOCUS macro shots!  Can't wait to play around more!
