True Friend

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a good week! I did! I can't believe it is time to start a new week already!! But I think I am ready. Because I didn't show a project yesterday, I am going to do two posts today. I have been working on a few swaps and have some cards ready to show. Hope you enjoy!

This card is made using a stamp set from the new Holiday mini collection. This Holiday mini collection is superb!! I love almost everything in it! But I did put a limit for myself. And this stamp set was one of them!! I used the new True Friend set. The way I did this image takes a little more time than just stamping an image. The flower is all one stamp. I used my markers and colored in each section of the flower (I actually used four colors on the stamp). So, if you want quick and easy this may not be the card for you. But it still turned out cute! I normally would not think of these colors together but the color wheel made the suggestion and I went for it! And it grew on me because I made a bunch for a swap I am in! Now I just hope it grows on those who will be receiving them!! In the upper right hand corner of the rust piece is five pierced holes and two of them have gold brads in them. I know that I have used this "technique" before but I really like it! This card also uses our new Basic Gray color and I just love it!
