Good Friend



I got my inspiration for this card from Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18 using Raspberry, Green, Chocolate, Kraft, and Cream and from the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge #37 at Our Creative Corner.

The card base is Kraft with a scallop punched Chocolate Chip lower panel under the main image panel of Very Vanilla. There is a peek-a-boo effect with the top half circle punch where you see a little Melon Mambo DSP and cardstock. I stamped the three flowers using the Good Friend stamp set, stamped and colored in the greeting with Old Olive and a blender pen. Finally, the Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain is wrapped around the entire card front and tied off in a square knot.
