Friends

I had a hard time coming up with something to do for the current Shining The Light Challenge for ODBD here & I didn't want to miss the chance to make a shaped card (love them!), so pulled out this beautiful Basic Grey pp called Two Scoops.  I started by making the card using one of my favorite Spellbinders Nesties--Labels 9.  Then I looked through my ODBD stamp collection & decided on the first stamp (Friends) I bought which is the verse from a song I've always liked--good thing because it ran through my head over & over & over--LOL!  It is stamped with Brilliance Starlite Black & clear embossed on the next size down Nestie turned the other way.  I added pink grosgrain ribbon & some pearls & popped it up on the card.  The butterfly is from the Don't Worry set.  It was stamped in black & embossed with clear ep, colored with Memento markers, cut out & sprayed with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz Frost & popped up on the edge of the verse.  The card is a little plain, but I think that's OK for this one.  Sorry I couldn't get a pic that was sharp.  Thanks for coming by--I always appreciate hearing what you think.

  6. I agree with Sue... by no means plain. Love the pretty PP and love the way you layered your nestie labels. Great card.
