Stampin Up, Festive Friday Friendship card,

Today I just had to use Dandelion Wishes for the Festive Friday friend challenge.  I've had my eye on this set since I first saw the new catalog, and I finally ordered it.  First here is the challenge.

If you have not checked out the Frestive Friday challenge, I encourage you to do so.  You sign up and then when you post you are awarded points that you can spend.  So, head on over and check them out.

I actually ended up using a few stamps and dies on this card to get what I wanted.  I just got the new sentiment set, it's called Itty Bitty Greetings, and is 2 cases full of most any greeting you need in very small size.   I end up using a lot of those and am really happy to see some that were missing in previous sets.
It's really hard to see, but the top and bottom edge of the DSP has a line of stitching, the pattern kind of hides it but it shows in person pretty well.   There are 2 5" long stitching dies in the Stitched Label die set that goes with the Stitched all Around stamps. I've used another of the dies on the bottom with the sentiment.

I embossed my dandelions in copper and used the Brusho Yellow in the set.
A little tip. Use the Thick Whisper White if you are going to be getting the card wet in any way. And you have to be careful, if you are wanting to work the wet to do much with it, you really need watercolor paper or the Shimmery White paper, that one has a little coating on it that helps.

So, I sprinked a bit of the color from my Brusho container then just a quick spritz and allowed to dry.

Thanks for stopping by today.
