Simple Friendship Friend

Another card!  This one works for a couple of blog challenges. Stampin' Royalty for the 'Create your own DSP background' challenge they have this week, and Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Tempting Turquoise.  Here is what I came up with!


Card base is Melon Mambo with a tight layer of Tempting Turquoise before the background layer.  For the background, I stamped the larger flower in an attempted pattern on Whisper White with Melon Mambo, then filled in with the smaller flower in both Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise.  A Daffodil Delight Taffeta ribbon is tied around-in a full bow for once, not a knot!  The 'friend' image was stamped in Melon Mambo and punched with the 1-3/4" circle punch.  It was then layered on two punches of the new (in the Holiday Mini) Decorative Label, one in Daffodil Delight and one in Tempting Turquoise.  That is layered on a piece of Melon Mambo before attaching with Stampin' Dimensionals over the ribbon. The corners on the background "DSP" and the Melon Mambo were punched with the Ticket Corner punch.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Items used are listed below.  Shopping button upper right side bar.
