Freshly Made Sketches 293, Friendship card

Strangely enough, this card was a lot of work. Not because it's hard to  make up, but because I had the hardest time trying to figure out how to make it and what colors to use and how to finish it.

We all have colors we gravitate to.  Usually we like them when we craft, designer our homes and buy our clothes. Mine are cool pastels. Blues, pinks, purples.   This DSP set had the same piece of paper in Rich Razzleberry, and I wanted so bady to use that, but I was really trying to use the oranges and greens.   If there is an orange I do kinda like it is this one, Calypso Coral, and our new Peek a boo Peach!  I think a lot of why I like that one is because it pairs so well with all the other colors in the new incolor set and they are in my wheelhouse.

Anyway, back to the card. I pulled out an old framelit set, Labels Collection from my retired box. I really wanted something different then what everyone else used.  The DSP is our new 6x6 stack called Petal Garden, it is simply gorgeous!

So here is the link for the challenge and the sketch. Please check out the challenge, the team has the most gorgeous cards going on over there.

Colors today are: Whisper White, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, black and Versamark for the tone on tone leaf images.

I love this card! That's one of my favorite die shapes (that I'll never part with either), and it really does look awesome with this vintage-y floral paper. Great combo!
