Friends

It's time for my 3rd Our Daily Bread Designs Customer Guest Designer post. This song was one of my favorites, so didn't have to think twice before I bought this ODBD stamp. It works great as the focal point of a card. This time I stamped it with Memento Espresso Truffle onto a fussy cut Fancy Labels image (also ODBD) stamped with Distress Ink peeled paint.  I colored the centers of the tiny flowers with a marker & added gems.  It's popped up over an embossed burgundy panel layered with 3 Beautiful Borders die cuts.  I need to use the flowers I bought before I had dies & these worked perfectly.  All I did was add the green brads & some Stickles.  The leaves weren't quite the right shade, so I sponged them with the peeled paint. Hope you've found something to inspire you. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to Guest Design & for the sweet comments you leave.

  5. Oh, Greta, what a beautiful card! I love the rich colors, and I especially love how you've tiered one of the Beautiful Borders dies against the deep red for a dramatic look! And I love the frame with this wonderful sentiment about friends!! Your flowers are such a beautiful touch, and I agree with Angie - just love them colored! Another stunning card, sweet friend, and I look forward to next week! Hugs!
