Friends Forever

Hi Friends!  The weather is getting warmer here in Auckland, and it feels Spring is about to arrive.  It's always exciting when the seasons change.  Today I have another project using one of my favourite stamp sets, A Year of Borders by Melanie Muenchinger.

Despite the changing seasons of life, some things stay constant, like the love of dear friends.  I've always been blessed with great friends, and this card is dedicated to them.  You have indeed touched my life!

The cardbase was embossed with a woodgrain impression plate.  The stamped image was coloured with copic markers (YG11, YG13, YG17 (leaves) YR02, YR04, YR07, Colourless blender 0 (flowers)) and adhered to the card using pop dots.  The word "friends" was stamped onto the patterned paper.  For the blue strip, first I adhered the left piece on the card, then the longer strip was adhered with pop dots for some dimension.  The word "forever" was die cut from a woodgrain paper and adhered with Glossy Accents to the blue strip.  To add a little balance, I cut a small section of the floral image and attached it to the bottom of the card.  The patterned papers are from Echo Park & Jillibean Soup.

Have a blessed weekend!
