It's Not All Black and White

Hello Friends!

Good morning! Even though I'm writing this Thursday night. I have to work tomorrow, but maybe I'll get done quickly and have some time to plant the flowers I bought today. Here's today's Friendship Friday card.

The card measures 3 1/2 x 6 1/4 to fit a regular (No. 6 3/4) envelope. A very fun size to work with. I stamped this flower from Stampendous using Timber Brown StazOn and colored with my aquapainter. I colored the stamens with my choc. chip marker. This was all done on a whisper white mega scalloped circle. It's layered on two more mega circles (Ruby Red) and set on dimensionals. Both the flowery and the blue paper are from my new Basic Grey 6x6 Gypsy pad. The ribbon is from Mike's dollar bin (Cherry). The sentiment was stamped on whisper white. Then I glued down the hardware and let it dry a minute. Lastly, I cut it out with my xacto. All this because I don't have the small oval punch. And I actually used ONLY ORANGE. I hate orange and years ago I accidentally bought TWO whole packs of it. Since it matches this Gypsy paper so well though, maybe I'll manage to use it occasionally now.

Thanks for visiting me. Don't forget to appreciate your friends. Gosh, imagine if we only had our husbands to talk to. (Not that I don't love my husband)
