Friends

I wasn't able to stamp as much as I liked this weekend.  We had a fun celebration for my daughter's 5th and she loved her Justin Bieber cake.  I think all the kids who attended the party had a great time and I wish I had a seat at the table to decorate my own.

Saturday night I really wanted to go down into the studio to stamp but hubby & I were cleaning out the space under our stairs trying to declutter some more and I came down with a bad migraine, so off to bed I went.  Yesterday, I was finally able to make it into the studio for a little bit to make a card for a swap I'm doing.   

We were to use the SSD58 sketch, which was easy for me as I had used this previously.  It was deciding the images, etc.  I decided to combine it with this weeks Playdate Cafe Challenge #65 which is the following color scheme:


Very difficult to see from my photos but their is grey in the card, with the patterned papers, it's layered on grey and the text I stamped is grey as well.

I added some glitter to my flowers and some Zva crystals below the sentiment and the very center of the flower.  I really wanted to emboss a sentiment in the focal circle but it didn't show as well so I ended up just coloring the flower and adhering it on the front.  

Hope my friend's like it and don't see it here on my blog before they get it in the mail.

I'm being lazy about the details so just let me know if you have any questions about the card.
