Celebrate Friendship - Alisons 40th

This picture is for my friend Alison's 40th!
I think it fits perfectly with the challenge over
at Sentimental Sundays - Celebrate friendship.

I have used my Window Rose image.
Paperpieced using Basic Grey Kioshi papers
and coloured with Sakura pens.

Paper flowers by Prima - these are in each corner
of the picture on the mount,
unfortunately I didn't take a good photo of the
complete picture.

Kioshi papers punched to create branches and leaves

Stickles for a bit of glam!

The sentiment

A friend is one who
strengthens you with prayers,
blesses you with love
and encourages you with hope.
