Friends...


I had some time to play earlier before having to go to meetings at school for my daughter to pick her high school courses for next year...it was only yesterday she was just a baby!

So, I wanted to play along with Mona's color challenge which is a favorite of mine and since I love JustRite Stamps, I decided to use them and submit one more for their Friday challenge! I didn't need anymore Valentine's for my family, so I decided to make one for one of my besties!

I started with my elegant Spellbinders Fleur de Lis shape cut from this sweet turquoise with tiny dots paper then added my red cardstock stamped with the JustRite Give Thanks Nested Frame set. I stamped my sentiment from the Friendship Nested Sentiments set on ivory cardstock and popped it up for dimension. I love this sentiment...it's so very true! I don't know what I would do without my friends!

I added a couple of the die cut shapes from the same Spellbinders set and topped one with a beautiful white Prima rose! Then came the really fun part...some pretty Sizzix leaves, die cut hearts, lots of pearls and some pretty sheer ribbon !

Here's the cool CR84FN graphic...


And sometimes you can't help but have a card with such a universal theme like "Love" that fits into so many challenges at the same time...I just couldn't help myself...

CR84FN13 - Color challenge - Red, Turquoise, Brown
