PTI's Friends 'Til the End & Quick Kits Challenge

Another fabulous, fun-filled day over at Papertrey Ink with the beginning of Nichole's reveals for all the awesome new stamps & other luscious products she'll have for sale after midnight on the 14th! Today's challenge was to create a card for your BFF, so mine is for my BBGF (Best Blogging Girl Friend) Gwen, because she is the one person solely responsible for not only persuading me to start a blog, but also for introducing me to Papertrey Ink!!! She cleverly coined BBGF & she's extremely creative, so stop by her blog & take a peek -- you won't be sorry!!!
I do apologize for the poor photo & I'll try to replace it with a better one tomorrow, but I'm trying to finish this at nearly midnight in my kitchen, as my guests & my husband try to sleep. Unfortunately my craft room is right next to the guest bedroom, which is usually great - except when you actually have guests!!!
I didn't have nearly enough time to create today, but decided to cut around the edge of this velvet paper because I know Gwen loves these papers. I merely edged it & my phrase in Summer Sunrise, added some bling and sheer ribbon. So, time to post/link/and cross my fingers that both my BBGF & I win PTI's awesome prize later today!!!
