A Wonderful Friend

Birthdays are a great time to let special friends know how much they mean to you. I enjoyed my stamping time by pulling out all the stops on this birthday wish for a wonderful friend. It all started with the patterned paper, you know how that goes, right? 

All I needed was some ink blending with beautiful floral images, gold foil for added elegance, and a great sketch! The lovely paper made it easy to dress up the envelope too. The foil I used is gold, but the photo is misleading because it just doesn't show the shine!

 The elegant sketch from Freshly Made was my taking off point. 

I am also playing along at Tic Tac Toe Challenge where I used the middle vertical row - florals, patterned paper, and die cuts. Also,  I think this is a good fit for Sunday Stamps Sweet Pastels. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and I will see you again next week! Thanks so much for your visit and kind words.

A beautiful design, Cindy, with the delicate florals (both in the background and your stamp layered ones) made even more elegant with the gold foiling! Love it to pieces! Thanks so much for joining us at Sunday Stamps and the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

Gorgeous colors…..gorgeous flowers! If stamping doesn’t work for you at some point I do believe you could become a florist!

Leslie Miller said...

I do know how that goes and I know that you know how I feel about patterned paper. This is so gorgeous, Cindy! The flowers and paper appear as though they were made for each other. Beautifully paired!
