My Dear Friend...

This is the first set of cards I made that were semi-doubles. I was looking on Splitcoast Stampers and came across this beautiful card & knew I had to make is the card I did first.

I did change a few details from the original card, I used black as my accent instead of Chocolate Chip and I used a different version of the DS paper. Since I don't have the same background stamp she used I left my background white and I opted to not do faux stitching along the edge. This card went together so quick and easy and really has a nice look to it. I think this will be one of the cards offered at my next camp.

Here is version 2, which I also really like...I added an extra flower bunch and made my black layer into an 1/8" border instead of a 1/4" border. I'm wishing I would have used Chocolate Chip paper to match the ribbon, but the black paper still has a nice look to it.

Stamps: Blossoms Abound (pg 99), All Holidays (pg 146)
Papers: Rose Red, Whisper White, Rose Red DS, Basic Black
Inks: Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Chip satin ribbon (Theater Ribbon Originals)
I like this flower in pink, yet hardly use it that way, so I'm challenging myself to grab any color combo that is not purple for the next few cards I make with this set, which will probably be alot, being this is one of my favorite sets!
