Wonderful Friend



Good Morning Peeps!

Today's card is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

I almost didn't do this one, I am not good with circle cards, but decide I needed to try.

I again used the SU set "Wonderful Favorites" I love this set and it has such pretty font.

I started by deciding to use some retired paper that I have barely used, Maine Blueberry. I choose the pretty striped piece for my color pallet. The base is Not quite Navy and made with my largest Scallop Nestie. Then I cut the circle with the large circle nestie out of the DS paper. The sentiment panel is made with old olive, not quite navy and papertrey white. I added a strip of old olive DS paper from the same pack across the bottom and then added two rows of piercing. The "friend" is stamped in NQN on white cut out and matted with some more NQN and added at a slight angle.

I added a star with a brad in the center in the corner and three brads across the bottom. Then I added some old olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon at the top. I used my crop-a-dial to put two holes into the card to thread the ribbon through. To make the center "puff" a little cotton from a cotton ball is stuffed behind the ribbon.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
