True Friend



I have my pre ordered sets from the new SU Spring Mini catalogue and this is the first card I have made with this set and the beautiful Apple Cider paper. That DS paper is to die for - the colours and designs are gorgeous!! I am in love with quite a bit in the new Mini!

A very simply made card - it was inspired by a way more lovely card made by Brooke. Thank you Brooke for the inspiration! It is just the colours and paper that make this one so effective I think. The flower has been inked with markers and I speckled the background with the Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp and Close to Cocoa ink.

The wording stamps out so beautifully clear - I love it! Hmm now who is a true friend to send it to??

Card: Wild Wasabi, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa and Naturals Ivory
Ink: Close to Cocoa and markers
Stamps: True Friend, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Wild Wasabi Double stitched ribbon, Apple Cider DS paper, brads
