Friendship Card - Multiple Challenges

This week is the first time I have made cards that actually meet the requirements for more than one challenge and it has been an interesting experience for me. The card below was a special one... If you look carefully, the piece with the writing on it has been especially created just for this card. Our Creative Corner challenge required that you incorporate song lyrics as inspiration, so I used the lyrics from one of my favourite songs from when I was a teenager. The song is called "Friends" and it is by Michael W. Smith. It was so appropriate at the time for me when I was in high school as most of my friends were a year ahead of me and leaving for university. I still had my last year of high school to complete. It was so hard to see them leave and that's what this song is all about - "Friends are friends forever, if the Lord's the Lord of them".
The other challenges met here were the Ribbon Carousel where you had to use felt and Freshly Made Sketches (click on any of the challenges to go to the websites).  

Enjoy, 
Alyson
