Friends are....

the most wonderful thing!  I'm so glad that I have made some lovely "friends I haven't met, yet" here in the papercrafting world!  Hopefully I will be able to meet some of you in real life one day!  When I made this card today I wasn't necessarily thinking that this would be entered into any challenges, but the more I looked at it the more I realized it fit several out there.  First, it works for the current Sentimental Sundays challenge:  Friendship.  Second it fits the current Flourishes challenge:  flowers.  And third, I used the current Mojo Monday sketch for the card. 




I started out by coloring the image from JustRite Stampers (My Garden set) with the following Copic makers:  RV93, RV32, RV34, Y21 & Y17.  I then diecut the image using a plain large Spellbinders circle die.  I stamped the border and diecut it using another plain large Spellbinders circle die and layered the two.  The color story was dictated by the Copic markers.   After looking at the colored image for a bit I pulled out some PTI Lavendar Moon cardstock and saw it was a perfect match.  I followed the sketch pretty closely.

Thanks for taking a peek...  thanks for your friendship!

Thank you for yours too, Rosie! It's wonderful having virtual friends all over the world, isn't it?! It would be so cool if we could all meet one day! Imagine THAT stamping party! :) Love your beautiful card! Sketches are tough for me and this one would really scare me! I admire how easy you make it look to follow them! Nicely done!

THIS is so classic and positively GORGEOUS! I love that sketch and how you've made it YOURS with this brilliant card. Gosh, Rosie - you're SO talented! The color work, that great STAMP!!! Everything is brilliant! I agree with you on the concept of "friends we haven't met...." 'Cept, that I still don't think of you in that category. I think of you in the same way I first laid eyes on my kids - it was like "there YOU are!" When the day comes, it will just be icing on our darling cake! I can't wait!

Thanks for the beauty and divine inspiration!!!
