Amazing, Lovely Friend

I desperately wanted to use this new Cheery Lynn Celtic Whimsy die as this is for my dear Irish friend Maggie as I bought it especially with her in mind.  However my mojo was in a dark place at the time and I stared at it for days before knowing how to proceed - ever had days like that?

In the end I took some pretty floral paper from a kit prepared by my dear friend Jaine Drake and went with clashing pinks and oranges (and green of course - she is Irish after all) to creat this card.  The "amazing" and "lovely" actually started life as plywood embellishments but they needed tarting up so I embossed them green and pink embossing powders 2 or 3 times until they were nice and juicy and sprinkled some glitter on top.

For the inside, I adhered a piece of the patterned paper from the front to some foam board and used a Sizzix Original die to create a very large bold "Friend" sentiment - original dies can cut through almost anything.  A little glossy accents et voila.

I'm entering this in the following challenges
