Wonderful Friends

Oh, yes, I am blessed with some wonderful friends! Two of them, Lissa and Nancy, helped me tremendously last weekend with my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party. So, I made them each a card and slipped in a little gift card treat for them.

I really like how this one turned out. I used Certainly Celery for my card base and sponged all the edges with matching ink. Then I stamped the long stemmed flower from Bloomin' Beautiful out of the Occasions Mini in Celery along the left side.

The Designer paper layer is from Spring Silhouetttes and is also sponged with Celery ink. I used Wide and Narrow Celery Grosgrain ribbon for the band and layered the focal point piece on Blue Bayou cardstock that was distressed with the Distressing tool from the Cutter Kit.

My focal point is the flower arrangement stamp also from Bloomin' Beautiful stamped off once then stamped onto Naturals White cardstock in Celery ink. I overstamped the greeting from Wonderful Favorites in Blue Bayou ink. The pearl accents are from the Pretties Kit and I also distressed the edges and then inked them with Celery ink by dragging the edges across the ink pad. It's popped up on Dimensionals for depth and adhered to the card.

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Monday!
