Friendship/Thank You Card

Today was another good day of crafting with some wonderful ladies.  I truly love our time together and it is so good to laugh with them.  I'm working on a special Christmas project during our crafting sessions that will be shared on a later blog post - I hope!!!

Tonight I pulled together a quick card to say thanks to a friend who let us spend a couple of nights with her this past weekend.  It was so good to see her and get to spend time with her.  I value her friendship and wish that we could spend more time together more often and that she didn't live 4 1/2 hours away.

To pull together the card I decided to use the colours from the Dynamic Duos Challenge - Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke.  Green is one of my friends favourite colours but unfortunately I didn't have any Always Artichoke paper so I used it for the ink only.

I also used the sketch from Sunday Stamps for inspiration to pull the card together.  I flipped the sketch on it's side as it worked better for the sentiment that I wanted to use.

Here's my card creation for these challenges:

Tools used:

Card stock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake (textured), Mocha Morning DSP
Ink: Always Artichoke
Stamp Set: Precious Butterflies
Other: Basic Pearls, Big Shot, Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder, Stamping Dimensionals

Thanks for dropping by!
