Friends Never Fade

Friday was the night of the 2010/2011 idea and catalogue launch. I hope the ladies had a good time because I know I did. This is just one of the cards that we made using the brand new Friends Never Faded (When I first saw this stamp wasn't keen on it but have been many cards with it already and I'm in love).

Tip for the flower, If you don't have all the makers. Firstly ink the with Baja Breeze (lightest ink) and then colour the stem with a Chocolate Chip Maker.

SU Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Ivory, Chocolate Chip.
SU Stamps: Friends never Fade and Sentiment from Great Friends.
SU Inks: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze,
SU Other: Hodgepodge Hardware, Twine, Scallop edge border punch

If you would like to attend one of my class please send me an email
