Best Friends Forever...

Hey there!! Here with a card for two challenges:  JustRite Friday Challenge (use your scraps) and a new to me sketch challenge called Cardabilities.  When I saw the sketch for Cardabilities I wasn't sure I would give it a try.   But then I remembered the JustRite challenge, that ends in a few short hours (yikes) and thought I would give it a try.  



I kept everything really clean and simple for this card.  I used up scraps from two different My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 2 paper lines:  Sunshine & Rosy.  Boy... I sure do love the Lost & Found 2 collections.  I have used up alot of the pads that I have so I'm going to need to get more!  The JustRite stamps used are from the My Garden and Vintage Oval Labels sets.  I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black and then colored it with Copic markers.  The image was then die cut with a Spellbinder small plain die and the paper with a scalloped circle die.  The little flower was made using more scraps and the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. The sentiment was stamped in yellow ink and punched out using a Stampin Up! punch.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Papers My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 2; Ink:  Memento & Stampin Up!; Dies:  Spellbinders; Copic markers

Hello Rosie.
Well you know what I am going to say don't you??????
Wow! I am impressed with that flower!!!
It is a wonderful sketch for you Rosie as it has encouraged you to use more than one piece of Paper, and you see what happens when you do, you come up with a sensational card, not that your CAS cards are not sensational, but if you have bits and bobs and things it has some interest in a different way, Don't you think?
Your colour combinations are great almost Tangy.

Such beautiful colours and patterns in the papers Rosemary, what a great take on the sketch! the flowers are a super focal point too :)
Whenever I visit your blog I have the song 'Hey there Georgy girl' by the Seekers humming away in my head....is the blog title inspired by this song????

Isn't it fun to be able to put lots of different dp's together on one card! You've done that so well here, and I LOVE the coloring on your stamped image! I think what I like best, though, is all that white space, and that you've popped the entire thing up on the card base. So elegant. A beautiful creation! ~Hugs, Cheryl
