Friendship Blooms Again!

Those of who who subscribe to my Newsletter would have seen this card already, but here it is for the rest of you! I've stamped the gorgeous swirl from "Friendship Blooms" in Basic Black ink on Cool Caribbean cardstock. The large flower has been stamped in Cool Caribbean ink and cut out. I've stamped the leaves in Certainly Celery and cut them out too. The centre of the flower is one of the flowers in the Flower trio stamped in black and cut out. If you're doing lots of cutting out, I can highly recommend the Paper Snips. Until I had these, I had no idea how much difference a good pair of scissors makes!
The bottom strip of Whisper White cardstock has been paper-pierced (using the Mat Pack) at the top, and scalloped (using the Corner Rounder - guard removed) at the bottom. The trio of flowers under the sentiment has been stamped in Cool Caribbean, stamped off once to make it lighter. And, much as I love the wide grosgrain ribbon, this time the narrow ribbon seemed to work better, in Certainly Celery of course ;-)
