Friends Forever

Kristina chose a very dramatic color combination for her inspiration challenge this week (#49). I wasn’t sure how to put these colors together, but I’m pretty happy with the end result. I used Beate’s Weekend Sketch #76, hosted by Laurie, for the layout of the card.

The card was made out of textured Basic Black card stock, and so were the strips with the white Chit Chat rub-ons. They were matted with Pacific Point card stock. The butterfly from the Simple Friendship set was stamped with Rose Red ink on Whisper White card stock and cut out. I also cut out a 3″ Pacific Point circle and scalloped the edge with a corner rounder punch (guide removed). The scalloped circle looked a little plain, so I added white dots with a gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by!
