Fabulous Friend ....

....  Good morning everyone!  It's Friday 13th today - I'm not superstitious, so it doesn't worry me at all!!  Earlier this week, Kathryn asked me to make a card for her.  She wanted a card to give one of her best friends, something to mark a special friendship.  It also happens that they met on 14th February!!!  So I've made a really clean, simple and pretty card - I'm safe posting it here today as neither of the girls will see it.

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Pure Florals Gerbera, Beautiful Blooms II, All Occasion Sentiments #3
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette; Memento - London Fog; Encore - Silver
Accessories: White Lustre Card


I've used a few challenges to make this card.  I've used the layout from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#110, the colours are from Colour Me Card Challenge - CMCC#58 and this week's CASology - CAS#133 has the cue word Love and I think the girls' friendship fits.

This card came together really quickly.  I stamped the outline image in grey and then stamped the solid image in pink.  These stamps are so easy to line up.  I finished by added a simple sentiment, stamping the words in different colours.  Don't you love the font on "fabulous"?  I kept the inside really simple - just a tiny flower (those gorgeous Beautiful Blooms).  There's lots of space for Kathryn to write a message.

I really must get on with some housework stuff - it's been a busy week in my craft room and my ironing pile is calling me.  It's always a good excuse to catch up with some TV programmes :)  That's all for now.  Do drop by tomorrow for our new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  See you!!
