I am SO excited (doing the happy dance)! My best friend from Northern Virginia arrives in a few hours for a visit. I have not seen her for about three years, so I am so excited and looking forward to her visit here in Florida. I made this card for her from the Stampin’ Up! Afternoon Picnic DSP to tell her “welcome, best friend”.
Would you agree with me that the color combination of Coastal Cabana and Wisteria Wonder is beautiful? I think they are striking together. These are the colors in all of the Afternoon Picnic DSP design patterns that I selected for this card.
The card’s “best friend” sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set. The sentiment was stamped onto a Coastal Cabana Card Stock Spellbinders Splendid Circle. It rests upon a 1-3/4″ Crushed Curry Card Stock circle. The flower resting on the sentiment is quite easy to make. I simply cut a 1-3/4″ circle from Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and “fussy cut” it in a circular fashion. I then rolled it around a wooden skewer and glued it together. Then I used the Stampin’ Up! Boho Blossoms Punch to punch out a Crushed Curry Card Stock flower that I glued into the center. Although you cannot see it too well, there is a tiny Basic Pearl in the center of the flower.
I used the MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge MOJO309 design as my guide to create the card. This is the MOJO309 design.
