Wonderful Friend

This wonderful sketch is from Silke Ledlow at Our Creative Corner This is a "go to" kind of layout that can be used again and again with successful results. I monkeyed around with the leaf a little but in the end decided to go with the cocoa sponged version. I'm completely in LOVE with the friends 24-7 stamp set. Its so pretty and timeless. The flower is stamped in versamark and embossed in gold on water color paper. I colored the images with stamp n write markers and a blender pen.
I utilized my nestabilities for the circle element on the card by layering 2 scallop circles, and a scallop rectangle for the greeting.I added a teardrop pearl to my ribbon with linen thread, I like the contrast of the delicate pearl and the rugged linen.How its made:
paper. close to cocoa, parisian breeze, baja breeze, vanilla, water color
stamps. warm words, friends 24-7
ink. versa mark, close to cocoa
accessories. gold embossing powder, ribbon, nestabilities, sewing mach., cuttlebug, markers, blender pen, pearl, matt pack, sizzix leaf die dimensionals
The winning Egg.
