Friend handmade card with a great digital greeting and some fun digital colour printed paper!!

I am making cards for my stash and decided to make a few for special friends when the time is right!!  This one features a large greeting by
Desert Diva which I laser printed onto white cardstock and trimmed to size.  I wanted to see if I could get the yellow "Friend" to stand out more but unfortunately the green water colour I applied did not help any.  It took me a bit of time to see what could be done to salvage the greeting but I finally decided to stamp over the letters with a small stamp set.  That worked better than I had expected.  I used my tracing wheel on the four sides to add some texture.  I added a yellow label punchie which was cut in half and mounted each piece to the long edges and then pierced the edge with a push pin.  I tucked in a dark blue half circle in the center of each one and finished off the greeting with a clear rhinetstone in each half circle.  Pretty happy with that!  I adhered a quarter sheet of decorative paper (Pixabay) to a coordinating card front and then mounted my embellished greeting over it.  Pretty happy with the over all look of this one!  I am stretching my comfort zone using large greetings.  Therese
