For a Friend

It's Sunday! I hope that you are able to grab some time today to relax with your goodies and be creative... it soothes the soul, doesn't it?
This card uses stamps from the beautiful Organic Grace hostess set and was very fast to put together. The main panel was stamped in Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant and Bravo Burgundy inks onto a Whisper White block. I used the scallop edge punch along the bottom of the panel and layered it on Elegant Eggplant. An Old Olive grosgrain ribbon was tied in a knot and trimmed, then this was adhered to my Old Olive cardbase. The sentiment from the Best Yet stamp set was stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink and punched out with the Designer Label punch. This was backed with a 1 3/8 inch circle in Old Olive and an Elegant Eggplant key tag punch-outs. To add a small bit of dimension, I popped up the sentiment block with popdots.
When you find that you don't have alot of time and need a quick & easy card, just remember random stamping in your main block. This technique makes really pretty background paper for scrapbook pages, too. I hope you have a great day ~ thanks for checking in, and I'll see you next time. :)
