Friend to Friend

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today's card is a simple card with a bit of a natural feel to it. I used the little bird die from the Birds and Blooms framelits, but kept the negative as the focal point for a little bit of a change. A couple of embossed leaves with the Linen Thread bow off to the side add a little texture without taking away from the focal point.
SU!pplies:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, DSP
Accessories: Linen Thread, Leaf Punch, Birds and Blooms framelits

Good Morning, Stampers!


We are back again this month for a fun color challenge at
on the Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop!




I combined the soft pastel colors with the Cool Treats stamp
set for a yummy summer layout! 

I punched lots of circles from designer papers and let them
give the color to this project. I stamped the ice cream treats
and placed them in between each photo block. A fun way to use up
some leftover scrap sheets of pretty paper!
