I was so excited at school today, because a dear friend of mine, who had been on a short trip to Europe, had returned. I was so glad to see her! Tonight, I'm going to another friends house for a home party - so today is all about friendship!!!
This first card follows today's Mojo Monday Sketch. I found this sketch very easy to do - I think it's a keeper for sure. I do so love working with this wide Striped Grosgrain ribbon - it's so soft and pliable - I just "wrapped" the legs of the vintage brad around the ribbon and through a hole in the base.
The colours are from last weeks' Splitcoast Colour Challenge - Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Black. I've had the scraps on my table all week - finally put them together.
Stamp Set - Vintage Vogue Paper - Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler Ink - Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler Accessories - Scallop Trim Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Modern Label Punch, Vintage Brads, Regals Brads, Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Glimmer Basics Brads, Snips, Dimensionals,
Again - another Extravaganza card - yes, I'm almost done sharing them! We did a lot of stamping that day - it was awesome!!!!! Watercolour paper was used for the flowers, bird and greeting. We also covered the bird with Illuminate Top Coat Smooch - so the bird glimmers nicely.
I hope today has been full of relationships that bring you happiness....friends are so important.
Thanks for stopping by - Joan
