Old Friend

I've been trying to make a card for a one layer challenge, it's just not working out for me.  My style is to add some fluff to my cards and this was just too much outside of my comfort zone. So I gave up.  Yes...I'm a quitter.

I created this this card for the Retro sketches challenge. While the top and bottom edges really screams "washi tape", I couldn't help add the paper lace.
