Thoughtful Thursday

Happy Thursday!!
Today is Thoughtful Thursday over on the My Creative Time blog. I've had the idea/design for this card floating around in my head for awhile now. I'm glad I finally had the chance to make it.
I stamped the Best Friends Background Stamp in kraft ink on kraft card stock. Then I took a piece of PTI's lovely lady and stamped it with the Stripey Background II Stamp in lovely lady ink. I took it and cut out the "friend" die from the Friendships Are Forever Stamp & Die SetThe rest of the sentiment is from the same set. I used a darker brown ink, so it would stand out from the background.
