{The Season of Friendship Lasts Forever}

This week I was chatting on the phone with a very dear friend and we were talking about how long it had been since we last spoke to each other. It had been awhile, but we both agreed that even though it had been awhile since we were able to catch up, our friendship had remained unchanged. I am so thankful to have so many friends in my life that this applies to as well.  This is where the main inspiration came from for my card today!
  Everything I used to make my card today is from Stampin' Up! The stamp sets I used are "The Nicest Things", and "Season of Friendship". I used retired DSP (Designer Series Paper) that was meant to match "Season of Friendship" , and as you can see from the picture I cut 4 different patterns of paper into 2.25 squares, and matted them on white card stock. I used the SU 3/16 small corner rounder on all the edges, and sanded them down to eliminate any rough edges. The main image was stamped on water color paper and colored with Blender Pens, Classic Ink, and SU Markers. I stamped the leaves from "Season of Friendship" in multiple colors of ink and attached them to my card using foam squares that I bought at Dollar Tree. I added Crystal Effects to the leaves and flowers to give my card some dimension. Oh, the button is not from SU, Making Memories I believe, but I used SU Linen Thread to thread the button.

Today I am playing along with the WaltzingMouse Sketch Challenge using this sketch:
And I am also playing along with the Paper Pal Arts Color Challenge using this picture as inspiration:



I love fall! And I am so happy you came by to visit my blog today! I hope that you are having a lovely Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!
