A Beautiful Friend Card

This card was created by using Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #30 over at Fresh & Fun. Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White is such a great color combination! I also chose to use my newest set, A Beautiful Thing. I just got it on Friday, but this is the first chance I have had to play with it! I think I used every stamp in the set on this card!

All products are Stampin' Up except for the brad which is from Making Memories! Keeping the challenge in mind, I chose my colors and the stamp set for the layout. I used blue bayou classic ink and VersaMark. I started by cutting all of my pieces out and then arranged them according to the challenge. I used the corner rounder punch on the wild wasabi cs to give it a scalloped look. I used versamark ink on the blue bayou cs strip and on the horizontal two strips of wild wasabi cs. I stamped the flower on whisper white cs by stamping off first to create a lighter color. Then I layered the other flower stamp on top using the full amount of ink. I cut it out. I added a white brad to this and attached it to the card with dimensionals. Everything else was place on with snail adhesive.

Thanks for looking and enjoy!!!

I love so many things about this card-the faux ribbons, the versamark "background" paper, and the faded vintage look of the flower. I would love a card like this anytime!
