To a Dear Friend


I was very intrigued by the colors given at As You See It challenge blog, and wanted to give it a go.

Here's the inspiration photo:

I die cut the flower and colored it with inks in Ranger's Tea Rose archival ink, TH Bundled Sage disress ink and Ranger's Library Green archival ink. Then I adhered it to another 3 identical die cuts. to give some dimension.

I die cut twice the leaves and colored them with Bundled Sage disress ink.

I embossed a dark greenish/turquoise dp and adhered it to the bottom of a kraft cs, and above it I added a jute and lace ribbon.

I adhered the flowers and the leaves on top. The sentiment (Stampin' Up) was stamped with the dark green ink on a kraft cs, fussy cut around and mounted on a sage cs, and then I adhered it on the ribbon.

The panel was matted with dark green cs and then mounted on the kraft cs basis.

As I really love this color combo, I just might use it for another card, this time a more masculine one.

It goes for the following challenges:
