My Friend

This card is actually covering two challenges - the sketch challenge over at Operation Write Home, and Paper Sundaes -- 3 pattern papers, 2 cardstocks, and 1 flower. My flower is one of my all-time favorite SU sets, Blossoms Abound. I used an iris and lilac ink from CTMH for the flower (unfortunately it photographed too much on the blue side, but I promise, it's purple) and kiwi and celery inks for the stems/leaves. The pattern paper came from Black & White Basics by Papertrey Ink. And the two cardstocks I used are, you guessed it, black and white. The rhinestones across the bottom are a light lavender because it needed a small pop of color. Enjoy your day - I know I am because the sun is out!
