Yes, I know it's Thursday...but if you've been following my blog for ANY length of time, you know that I RARELY get the MOJO Monday done on an ACTUAL Monday. In fact, I think it's happened ONCE - LOL!
Today's card is for a dear friend who is celebrating a birthday this weekend! The best part? I get to spend the DAY with her and a couple of other WONDERFUL friends. We've known each other probably for about 10 years or so and we STILL (as time allows) get together once a month and craft! Sometimes months and months go by before we see each other, but we pick up RIGHT where we left off like no time has passed at all. THAT is an AWESOME kind of friendship! Wouldn't you agree?
Anyway, onto the card...
I still had some Baja Breeze out from Keely's Workshop this past weekend, so I started off with that. Then, I decided on a monochromatic look, so I took out my Not Quite Navy. Did you know that Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy are a "Dynamic Duo"? You should check out the Colour Coach! There's all kinds of GREAT ideas on that! I use almost every time I create!
Since we've been friends for such a long time, I chose a set that feels a little "vintage" to me. The image is from one of the new sets in the 2012-2013 Catalogue called "From My Heart". Appropriate, don't you think?
I stamped it in Not Quite Navy and then hand cut it (yes, for real). Then I stamped the "Friendship" again in Baja Breeze and hand cut that. I added it on top of the image using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I then punched out a 2 1/2" circle using my circle punch and adhered the image to that. Next came the paper piercing, which you can somewhat see in this detail shot:
The image seemed like it was missing a little something, so I took three of the smallest paper daisies, coloured them with an inked sponge dauber and bedazzled them with a Basic Rhinestone before using a glue dot to attach them to the card.
Here's the inside:
I won't subject you to the mush I'll be adding later. :)
