A friendship card that features serendipity collage, a stamped greeting in an oval opening

For this friendship card I started with this large piece of embossed serendipity collage from my stash.  Serendipity is lots of fun and uses up your little scraps of paper to make a very cool piece of paper which you can use in your future creations!!  I die cut an oval opening in it and mounted a stamped greeting in behind.  The original stamp (SU) has only "friend" so I added "my" using an alphabet stamp set in the same colour as the original.  I used gold embossing powder on the flower and dots to reinforce the gold theme from the collage.  I washed it with a bit of watercolour as well because it was quite bright and I was wanting a more subtle look.  With my greeting in place, I layered the collage onto an embossed brown layer (TH) and then the large element to a dark red card front.  I am having lots of fun creating one of a kind cards!!  Therese
