TSOL: If Friends Were Flowers...

Hello! Did you all have a wonderful Halloween?  Ours was cold and rainy, but the boys had fun.  Will did not want to dress up this year, but I told him he had to at least wear a mask.  He ended up staying out the entire 2 hours and came back with a HUGE bag of candy. It is really kind of ridiculous how much candy he received.  My little guys have been way more interested in the "giving" of the candy in recent years (which I think is super cool). They stayed out about 25 minutes and were happy to come back to pass out candy.  They sat out in the cold till the bitter end, too!

Okay...the card.  I made this card with Stephanie Barnard's new Framelits and stamp sets for Sizzix.  I love these sets that come with matching stamps and dies.  This set can be found here.  I layered two of the flowers together, stamped the sentiment in black, and inked the edges with distress ink.  The background paper is from Prima, I believe. It was in my scrap bin!

This is for the PaperPlay Challenge-Thanks A Bunch
