Friendship Blessings

This is the card I made for the sketch challenge today on SCS. I honestly don't know how Roxi keeps coming up with these week after week but she does and this was a fun one to work with! It went together really quickly, which is good since I'm in a bit of a hurry!

I used one of the newly released Our Daily Bread designs sets called Friendship. This month there are three great sets all using doodled butterflies or dragonflies, and great sentiments. I love these sets! Not only are they pretty, but the nature of the doodled designs makes them perfect for quick cards, because you don't have to color them!

I stamped my image with VersaMagic in Purple Hydrangea twice, and clear embossed, then cut out the dragonfly from one to pop up. The paper I stamped this image on is a discontinued SU! Certainly Celery DP.

I stamped my sentiment from the same set with Archival Jet Black and cut with my Nestie Label #4.

My paper layers are"
Base: Bazzill
Floral: DCWV
Striped: Unknown from my stash
Green: SU!
White: Georgia Pacific

I used a Martha Stewart edge punch and the bling is from The Paper Studio.

Please don't forget that there is a Design Team Challenge going on at Our Daily Bread designs! All you have to do is make a pocket card and upload it to the ODBD Blog by Sept. 17! YOU could WIN one of THREE new sets being given away by Kelley!!! Check out all the details here!

Thank you so much for looking! Have a great day!!!
