Best Friends


Hi everyone!  Are you ready for the weekend?  I'm hoping to get my tax return done then want to spend lots of time in my craft room!  Today though I'm popping in to share this delightful card with all of you.  I love this adorable Best Friends digital stamp by Heart Song Designs as well as the beautiful soft colors in the K&Company patterned paper I paired it with.


My card base is Pink Pirouette layered with PTI White then Polka Dot patterned paper.  The shadow layer is Meadow Stripe patterned paper layered on Pink Pirouette.  I stitched around the edges of both pieces of patterned paper.  The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on Pink Pirouette.  To embellish the card I added Pink Pirouette Double Striped Ribbon and some pearls on the shadow layer and image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

I just love that cute image! The pastels and earth tones blend beautifully and your layout is perfect! As always... you've done a fantastic job Karen!
p.s. I'm working on a stampscape and taking photos as I go along so you'll see how the colours build. If everything goes to plan I'll have it posted tonight or tomorrow morning!
Have a great weekend!
