Friends

I am a little behind, but I decided to check out this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I have been wanting to use this pattern paper from "Little Yellow Bicycle", so I started using that. Once I had the base done, I was at a loss for which stamps to use. I rummaged through my stamps and settled on "Boho Backgrounds" which is one of those sets that sits untouched. I thought the medallion image looked nice with the circles on the paper and it was fun to create all of the different colored layers. I stamped the medallion once onto the focal piece using Crushed Curry ink, I then stamped it again onto a piece of scrap paper using Certainly Celery. I punched that out using the 1 1/4 inch circle punch and used dimensionals to attach it to the focal piece. I stamped it again using Lavendar Lace, but before I added it to the card, I used a styled silver brad for the center. Once that was done, I stamped the friends sentiment from "Friends 24-7" using Basic Gray ink. I thought the celery panel looked a little naked, so before I adhered the focal piece, I used the circle background from boho backgrounds to give it a little pop. It was just the right thing. I added a little paper clip and knotted some ribbon for the finishing touch.

By the time I was done making the card and photographing it, I was seriously nauseated, so it took me until this morning to get it uploaded. I really think this baby is sucking all of the creativity from me! LOL! I will be back tomorrow with another one of Jen's "Sketch for You to Try" cards.










I have taken the week off from stamping as you can see. My kids start school on Monday, so I have been hanging out with them. I will be back on a regular schedule once Monday rolls around.

I want to thank all of you again for all of your sweet comments in regards to the baby! How lucky I am to have such great friends that I don't even know! You really are the best! Thanks for fluttering by!

Such a cute card with great colors. I esp. like what you did with the medallion. We can always count on you to use those stampin' dimensionals! Love the paper too! If only I could be so "uncreative" as you are feeling. It must be the hormones (?) because you still have the "IT" factor, Kelly!!!
