Simple Friendship

I honestly don’t know what to think of this card. I started out with Jen del Muro’s sketch and chose the Simple Friendship stamp set because of the large circular image. Perhaps I shouldn’t have tried combining the sketch with Kristina Werner’s colors (from her 43rd color inspiration challenge), but what’s done is done.

The round image was stamped with Chocolate Chip Craft ink on Whisper White card stock and clear embossed. I colored the flowers with Classic inks and a blender pen, then punched out the 1-3/4″ circle. The sentiment at the bottom of the card was stamped on (retired) Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper and the flowers on the Pumpkin Pie panel were stamped with the same color ink. I embellished with ribbons and an Old Olive felt flower.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I like the card myself. I think the double bows bother my eye and maybe that is why you are having trouble with it. Other than that, I think it is a really cool card. Thanks for sharing.
