A Friend Like You
For Flower Friday!
I just got back from 3 hours of stapling test practice packets for Brett's class and have paper cuts and sore thumb pads! Here is the card I promised earlier, the battery is fully charged now!
Simple stamping is the theme today, paired with some delicious patterned paper. Seems like I always incorporate patterned paper these days. When I began stamping I rarely used it, however, there is just so much pretty paper out there! The color scheme reminds me of one of Jay's favorite desserts; Orange Dream frozen yogurt with crushed Heath Bar. I'm more of a Peanut Butter frozen yogurt with crushed Reese's cups kinda gal.
Okay, let's get back to the card before I need to run down to the yogurt store for lunch! I wanted to try a different color paired with SU!'s Au Chocolait Designer Paper than what I typically use and began pulling scraps out to see what look interesting. The apricot and pumpkin with the chocolate was what I decided on; card base is Linen stamped with SU! classic ink in Pumpkin Pie. A strip of Au Chocolait is adhered to the right side of the card. The simple vanilla image panel uses the flower from SU!'s Polka Dots and Paisley set that I have markered in Old Olive and Pumpkin. Sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip. Layered the finished image panel on Chocolate Chip, and attached to a Pumpkin Pie layer with dimensionals. Tie a length of apricot grosgrain, add a couple of olive brads, and this card is completed.
Simple, clean, and delicious!
Have a fantastic Friday!
