Good Friends

Good Morning everyone, it's time for the last ever challenge at The Crafty Pad, Debbie has decided to close The Crafty Pad Designs Shop and so the Challenge Blog will also be closing.  The theme for our last challenge is - FRIENDSHIP/KEEP IN TOUCH so please take the time to join us this week and share in our final goodbyes.

This is my card, made using my favourite Crafty Pad Image - Dress Form Trio:

My papers are Hot Off the Press and I have inked all of the edges with distress inks.  Full details of what I have used are listed below:

My card has been decorated on the inside with matching papers and layout:
