It is faint in the photo, but my favorite line on the DP is a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson & it reads
" A friend is one who knows us but loves us anyway"
I just LOVE this image from Bugaboo! It is so sweet & was so fun to color! I used my colored pencils & a little bit of Pear ink (CTMH) to color the image, the flowers are stamps from a set called flower2doodle from The {Stamps} of Life. It is one of my fave sets, I reach for it all the time! Just love 2 step stamping. I used Pear & Gyspy ink from CTMH, then cut them out, coverd with glossy accent & then added green glitter glue for the centers. I used embroirdery floss to pull in the sections of ribbon under the flowers & then added them w/ pop dots. I attached the matted image to the ribbon using small silver brads. The DP is new (Joann's had it on sale 6 sheets for 96cents how can ya go wrong?!!) and I didn't write down who it was by before I wrote this.
I am entering this at:
Catch the Bug : Green + a Sketch
Do You Stack Up : use Green
Simon Says Stamp : 1 image, 2 design papers, & 3 different types of embellishemnts
Stamp Something : Digi Days (use a digi stamp)

Happy Friday! :) hugs, Candi
