Flower Basket Bike Birthday Card

This is for my longest friend…she is not by age my oldest friend, but I have known her the longest. She moved into our neighborhood when I was in 4th grade (she was in 5th). My family moved to another state when I was in 5th grade. My longest friend and I have kept in touch all of these years by letter and now e-mail, Facebook, and the occasional phone call. I do treasure her, and I really hope that I have conveyed that sentiment over the years!

Here is another stab at last week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge, Cherry Pie Delight (Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight).

Actually, this background was my first attempt, BUT, it did not turn out as I imagined, and I set it aside to dry (I don’t throw wet paper into my circular file!). When it was dry, I decided that even if it didn’t turn out as I thought it would, it was interesting. I overstamped and embossed the tulips in black.
