Sweeet Friendship

Hello everyone,
Today I have created a card for a few different challenges. 1st up is Splitcoaststampers Color challenge, Next is Cheery Lynn #223 Flourish theme Challenge, and then Really Reasonable Ribbons #135 Celebrate Theme challenge(Friendship) is what I chose for this one.

SCS CC572 So for the Color challenge we were to use Red, Green, and 2 different blues. I did the red flowers,green flourishes, and then the blue card stocks, that are 2 different shades. I also used HC design paper that I had left over.

Cheery Lynns Flourish theme, I used 2 flourishes for my flowers to create a vine for around the Doily. The Doily used is my FAVORITE one from Cheery Lynn and is called French Pastry!

Really Reasonable Ribbons Celebrate Theme challenge. I wanted to make a friendship card to send out. So I thought Friendship would be the theme on this celebration.

Base- measures 6 x 6 so I cut the black card stock 6 x 12" and scored at 6". Next I cut my darker of the 2 blues 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" then the dp for that layer was cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Glued together and then sewn. For my smaller panel, I did the same
Flowers - were stamped in distressed ink, airbrushed with copics Red, and pink, to create this color. Next I distressed the edges with fired brick, and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give the glass look. Love making these. Lastly I added some vintage pearls to the centers in different sizes.
Doily-Cut in black, then I used a spellbinders circle to cut the layer on top. I stamped Our Daily Bread Designs Stamp in memento black ink, and distressed the edges of the circle in Faded Jean.

Ribbon is from my stash!
Supplies Used:
Heartfelt Creations posy stamps and dies , Vintage pearls, embossing powder, heat gun, hot glue, glue pad, memento black ink, ODBD stamps, Ribbon, Cheery Lynn Doily , Spellbinders , sewing machine, ATG gun. Glass leaves

I really enjoyed creating my card for today! hope you enjoyed my post!
