Special Friends

To finish my design week on the Penny Black Blog, I have a colorful bouquet.  

Penny Black's Mix & Match cardstocks not only make coordinating colors and layers easy, but the one-sided color feature also gives you fantastic results for sanding techniques.

The base of this card was made from the darkest shade of Clear Skies and the lightest shade was used for the background paper stamped with Delicate Pattern in Majestic Blue VersaFine.

The bouquet from "To You" was colored with Copics and then trimmed.  Extra flowers from an additional stamped image were added on top for dimension.  Stickles and a sheer green ribbon were added for embellishment.  

To balance the design, a few horizontal dry-embossed lines were added to the sentiment frame before it was matted with purple cardstock.

It has been a wonderful week sharing my designs on the Penny Black Blog.  Don't forget to enter your designs for the "thank you" challenge for the chance to win Penny Black stamps! (Click here for details)
