The Sweetest Flower

This is the card I made for the Friends 'Til The End Challenge, given by Nicole at Papertrey Ink. The challenge was to make a card for our best friend in celebration of friendship and the exciting new products soon to be released at PTI. I stamped the flower pot and the flower twice, cut them out and put them on foam tape-love that stuff-for a bit of dimension. On my flower pot to give it some depth, I inked it with terracotta and then used a dauber to lay on a bit of chocolate ink. I wanted it to look mossy and not so flat. I stamped the sentiment, cut it out with my Nesties and put it up on foam tape, too.

Don't forget to see my previous post for a chance to win some Blog Candy!
