Simply Friends


Just posting this today so I can squeeze into HA's contest, which is ending today. 
A very, very simple card...

{sorry about the poor quality of the photos}

I just used some regular old black pen to make the lines, and used an HA stamp for the sentiment. Then I inserted the brads and tied the bows, but I felt something was missing. So what else to do but use my trusty HA background stamp? ;) I tried my hardest to make the lines parallel with the card, but the stamp does what it does. If you read my blog regularly, you might know that I don't really have control over my stamps. ;)
The best part of this card was that it didn't use any adhesive, on which I am getting desperately low.

Anyways, just a little post like my card. Thanks for stopping in. ;)
