Friends Never Fade



I'm loving that Poppy Parade gingham printed DSP from the Pawsitively Prints II DSP pack! I used it as the background of my card on a Pink Pirouette card base. After punching a strip of Wild Wasabi and layering it with some Greenhouse Gala DSP, I used the sewing machine to add a little trim on it, then added some gathered Peach Parfait Poly Twill ribbon. After stamping the main image with Poppy Parade ink, adding some glitter to the flower center, I layered it onto a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock then adhered it over the card front. Finally, a full bow was added to the gathered ribbon trim with a couple of crystal pins peeking from the top.





Stamps: Friends Never Fade
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White CS, Pawsitively Prints & Greenhouse Gala DSP
Ink: Poppy Parade
Other: Scallop Trim Punch, Peach Parfait Poly Twill Ribbon, 2-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Crystal Pins, Sewing Machine, thread

Rochelle said...

I have been missing playing along! I made a card last week, but life got in the way and I didn't upload it! Thanks for making me use the new colors! :)

Shelley Germann said...

What a cheerful card! Kinda of funny how you "forget" how much you love something until something (or someone) reminds you. I adore gingham...so I really love this card! Great stamping! Your image is perfect!

maryr917 said...
