True Friend

Hello my friends!

So, I am excited to share today's card with you all! As you know already I am having a blast playing around with my In Bloom stamp set. I love it, it's such a versatile set and I can't quite put it down! On yesterdays card I layered the bloom image and showcased it as the main focal point. Today card uses it as a background for the sentiment. So onto the card...
Since the sentiment is so long I chose to layer the sentiment over the image. The sentiment comes as one stamp, but to get the two colors I carefully inked up one side in brown and then the other in raspberry. Then placed a few buttons in a way to help draw the attention to the sentiment.

Are you loving this color combo as much as me? I think it may be one of my faves! Oh, and can you believe it, I resisted the corner punch on this one!!! LOL!

Hope you are enjoying your last bit of the weekend! We are headed to a friends house for dinner and dessert, I'm bringing the strawberry shortcake! Mmmmmmmm! :)
