so glad we're friends

Hello! Each month I look forward to the 14th to see all the new Papertrey goodies! This month is no exception as it is their 3rd anniversary celebration and it's sure to be bigger and better than ever! My card uses Nichole's Day 8 "paint" by number sketch challenge. In addition, there is a color palette depending on each of our PTI online username. Since I'm "sikraft", that means my color palette falls into the N-S category. {See below for sketch and color palette.}
I started with a Scarlet Jewel card base. Next, I used Background Basics: Petal Power and heat embossed it onto Kraft cardstock. I stamped some silhouette flowers from Life onto Sweet Blush, stamped "so glad we're" from Friends 'Til the End with Smokey Shadow ink and rounded 2 of the corners to soften the edges. I then stitched it on top of the Kraft panel. I dry embossed a scalloped strip of Smokey Shadow with Swiss Dots before adding it as another layer. The final layer is Vintage Cream saddle stitch ribbon, tied with a bow and embellished with a twine tied button. To finish off my sentiment, I stamped "friends", die cut it with the middle-sized tag from the Spellbinders Tags Trio and sponged the edges.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!
