Word Art Wednesday #66 Friendship Card

With Valentine's Day this week, the verse shared with us at Word Art Wednesday is a unique picture of friendship. Here it is, in case mine is too small for you to see.
 
 Friendship is being related to the ideas of perfume, rejoicing in the heart and sweetness. I recall that when I was in my 30's I relished the "hearty counsel" that my Christian friends would give me when I was struggling with different issues. Those friends were like magnets that pulled me into their fellowship. So I'm not surprised that this Proverb includes the idea of getting counsel from a friend with the sweet happiness that friendship can pour into the heart, making you rejoice.

I used this lovely sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge #143:

 
I used a digital stamp from Beccy's Place for my roses. They were colored with Copics. I edged the yellow petals with pink, like some of my favorite roses at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. I used the lighter shade of yellow on the outer petals, the way rose petals usually fade. 
 
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
