Perfect Sentiment's Challenge 02: Friendship Inspiration

The Perfect Sentiments Challenge this week was to create a card reflecting a sentiment of friendship.  In addition, they always have a twist.  This week's twist was to use the picture below to inspire your creation.  I chose to use the colors in the picture below as my inspiration:


And here is my friendship card:

"Priceless"
Oh ... You Got TO Have Friends

In addition, the Divine Miss M - Bette Midler - one of my all-time favorites was an inspiration for this card.  Challenges most often I relate to music.  The first time I heard this card I remember clearly where I was and what I was doing.  It was May, 1974.  Our entire floor at college was packing up to head home for the summer and we had this song blasting through the hallway.  


Do you have a favorite word?  Mine is "priceless".  More than likely I use this word most often when commenting on family and friends photos, stories, gifts from the heart, apologies, forgiveness, acceptance, loyalty and on and on.  The image ~ Stamping Bella violet Bittybloom ~ with a dance in her step and her arms spread wide open made me think happiness of having good friends and a welcome to have more.

Oh Sassy, I love your take on the photo! I am really into the step cards right now. In fact, I have a couple ready when inspiration strikes. You did a fabulous job with yours. I almost didn't see your Bella image for a minute, under the darling "attire" you gave her. What a creative idea. Love the distressed look with all the fibers, and the sentiment is....ummm....priceless! lol Seriously, you did a great job. Plus, I appreciate the song from Bette! So glad you joined in our challenge this week!
