Friendship card

For a fun challenge, we had to use a Page Map card sketch as follows

I came up with this Friendship Card because I wanted to try using Gesso on the background (as demonstrated by a friend recently).  This is the finished result:

To put this together I used:
Cardstock - Bazzill - cream and brown
Patterned paper - Making Memories 'Paper Reverie'
Tree - die cut from 2Crafty (stamped with 4 different Tim Holtz distress inks) with a touch of Copic E44 marker
Embellishment - Vintage Findings - Twin Birds
Lace - from stock
Patterned ribbon - Webster Pages
Twine - general
Ribbon - hand dyed wrinkled rayon - Midnight Black & Blue
ippity stamp from 'Fall for you' series
Extras - white Gesso; Stampin Up Champagne shimmer paint mixed with Isocol
General - dimensional dots

It is hard to detect the soft shimmer from the photo.  I stamped the sentiment 'laugh with your eyes, hug with your soul and smile with your heart' and then sprayed the mist, so the ink did smudge a little unfortunately - adds a little to the 'shabby' look tho.
