To my Friend - FTL218 - FABFRI09

I'm in a swap with some friends from Convention and this was what they got this month. Our themes are basic (this month it's Sale-a-Bration) and we each make the allotted number of cards and mail them out individually. I love swapping this way because we get one or more cards throughout the entire month.

I found an old sketch (FTL218) from Clean and Simple that would work with the image I was using. It also turns out that it is very similar to another challenge site I just found called Fabulous Friday: FABFRI09 so I'm adding it there too. The large rhinestones were the perfect embellishment for this card. I used the entire pack and love them so now I need more. Don't forget to search older sketches to find what works with what you're using.
