My Friend

Today I'll share a very simple card I made.  I first found a scrap of designer paper in my box that I had already punched with a scalloped edge punch, so I used that as my starting point.

My next step was seeing the pinkish colour in amongst the black and so I knew I was going to stamp in a soft pinky shade.  The floral image is from Stampin' Up and so is the sentiment, they are from a set called "My Friend".

To finish it off I added a few dots with some Liquid Pearls.  They really do add a nice touch and I love this particular colour that I received in one of my monthly SSS Card Kits,  it's called Petal Pink.

It's supposed to be winter here but we are having the most glorious weather, it's just totally awesome.  I know the cold is coming, but right now I am loving every minute of this sunshine.

Hoping you are having a wonderful day!

Such a treasure you made from your scrap, Brenda! Love the contrast of the colors and also the vibrant against the delicate. Glad you are enjoying your weather - ours has been quite hot. But, I love summer. Hugs.
