...For My Friend

This is my submission for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try from yesterday. I started with an Always Artichoke Cardstock base, and matted the additional layers with it and Tangerine Tango Cardstock. The patterned papers were from the Tangerine Tango Designer Series Paper pack, and the Haiku Designer Series Paper pack. The large Kraft Cardstock panel was pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The flowers were created using a combination of Sizzlets Dies (Birds & Blooms), Spellbinders' Classic Circle Nestabilities, and punches (1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch). The sentiment was from the retiring stamp set "Elegant Cheer", and was stamped in Always Artichoke Craft Ink. I embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. Silver Jumbo Brads were added to the centers of the flowers, and a piece of 5/8" Tangerine Tango Striped Grosgrain Ribbon were added to complete the card.

That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow with a card AND a project (if I can get it finished! LOL!)...whoohoo! Until then...

I love this card! There is so much
depth and balance. Your cards have
such a clean look. You have a style
that is so your own that I think
one could be picked out of a card
"line up"! Thanks for the details
so we can try to create one also:-)

OMG girl this is freakin amazing. Love the way you went out of the box on the circle images. Your color choice is great too. I would have never put those colors together but you made it look great. You are my hero!!
