Great Friend



Good Thursday Morning Peeps!!! Hope you all are having a good week so far!

Today's card is made with this weeks sketch challenge on Splitcoast.

I decided to dig into some of my retired designer paper for this one. It is just from the last catalog, so still has an in color in it, tangerine tango to be exact.

My card base is tangerine and the DS paper is Haiku and each layer is mounted onto basic black. I used a new stamp set from the current mini, Great Friend. I really like the butterfly in that set, butterflies seem to be one of the hot trends right now, I think anyway.

I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment and the leaves where I wanted them. The butterfly is stamped in tangerine on whisper white and cut out. I used some mini black brads down the middle and to attach it to the sentiment panel, That butterfly is not going to flutter away!!! LOL! I stamped the leaves with old olive that I had stamped of gently once onto scrap before stamping onto the white panel. I wanted a bit softer look and that worked perfectly.

The main panel is up on dimensionals as is the whole side piece. I used some tangerine ribbon to wrap around and tie a pretty knot and three more mini black brads to complete.

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