Friends Are Forever
I spent all evening making this one card (yes, I am a very slow stamper). It combines the red, black, and chartreuse color challenge on StampTV with today’s sketch challenge on SCS (SC303).

After three attempts I finally got the garden trellis punched correctly (with scallops on both sides). The beaded ovals die-cuts were distressed with green and red inks before I stamped the flowers and the sentiment on them with black ink. I threaded a red button with black embroidery floss and adhered it to the card with Scor-Tape.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I thought I was a slow stamper. I’m glad to hear that I am not the only one. It takes me hours to design and create a card.
