SSC149 True Friend

My card for this week's Stamping 411 sketch challenge. Here is their sketch:

And here is what I did with it. Still not much creativity here, no time! Such a busy time of year with the end of the school year. My boys will be out in just over 2 weeks! YIKES!!!

Card base is Elegant Eggplant, background Always Artichoke with the new Square Lattice embossing folder. Loving that new folder and seeing it everywhere!!! Images are from True Friend. I stamped the main image on Naturals Ivory using my markers in Elegant Eggplant & Always Artichoke. Background strip inked in Elegant Eggplant. The 'friend' is from the saying in the set, 'a true friend is you friend'. I just inked the top 'friend' with my Elegant Eggplant marker. I added Always Artichoke brads to the center of the main flower, and on the saying on both ends. Pretty quick and easy!!!

Hope you're all having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!!

LOVE this card! I've always loved that stamp set, I have no idea why I never bought it...you may have just put me over the edge and now I "need" it!! Great color combo and texture! I can't believe your school year ends in two weeks, I'm so jealous since I work at the school in our area, we've got 5 weeks to go!
