So here is my simply stamped but heavily embellished Friend Creation for the challenge. I used one Floral Pattern Stamp with black ink to create the patterned squares next to the sentiment and along the bottom edge of the card. I used the new Wood Grain paper from SU on this card. It is backed with a paper layer, so it cuts nice and clean. I lightly airbrushed my sentiment panel with a Copic W3 and outlined the frame it while still in the Nestie to get my border. This card is loooong, to fit in a business size envie, so I went long with my embellishments too. I added three little wood strips and loaded them with some bling. I was inspired to use the wood on my project by the Belli Challenge #71 this week. I finished it with a little natural jute bow, created with the Bow Easy Tool.

  2. That's way cool -- from a distance, you don't see the diamonds so much as four daisies. Cool effect!
