Celebrate Friendship.

Hello my friends. Hope you are having a great day! Here has been rainy and rainy and... Rainy!! We are having a really weird Spring season, the temperatures are below normal and it is cold! I am praying for a better, mild weather. For the first time, since we moved into this town we are having a garden! I suppose the rain helps, but too much rain and cold temperatures... hmm maybe not.

So, that's why I am spending a little more time stamping. I created this pretty card for two challenges. Sketch comes from Card Patterns and also I am submitting this card into the Celebrate Something Challenge over at Stamp Something.

Details about  my card: I started my card with a piece of PL Ivory CS. I matted a piece of Chocolate Brown with a piece of PP from K&Company ( Collection). I sponged the borders of the PP with Tea Dye Distress Ink, also distressed, then I punch the right side of the Chocolate Brown CS using the Threading Water Border Punch. After that I added some straight stitches around. Then I added some Cream Satin Ribbon and the Chocolate Chip Ribbon Flower (handmade by me). It is super easy to make.
The sentiment was stamped in a piece of  Ivory in Espresso Ink, then cut out and embossed with Square Nestabilities.
