Another Friendship Card

Most of my non-Christmas cards are friendship cards I send to blogging friends.  Had fun last night using some of my Verve stamps & dies to make another card for the April Diva Inspirations Challenge (which is about to close) along with the first May sketch at Mojo Monday.  
The stamps are from Dream Big & New Beginnings.  I finally watched Julee's videos on how to line up the dies & boy does that work slick! Just got Distress Ink mermaid lagoon, so had to try it out for the flowers--using the mini Misti makes it possible.  The leaves are actually stamped in Brilliance Moonlight White--very subtle, but pretty in real life.  I used a PPP die for the scalloped gold edge & some pretty sequins finish it off.  I'm also entering Stamping Sensations.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  10. An extremely eye catching colour palette Greta and I know the Brilliance ink will have made the leaves really shimmer.

  17. wonderful design Greta. I'm not sure if its because I have been catching up on comments or if blogger is changed, but I am having to prove I am not a robot with each comment.
