A card for friends


     I needed to make some cards for some very special friends and this is what I came up with.  I'm using the Friday Sketchers sketch for this week and colors from The Play Date Cafe.
     I stamped the music score on some French Vanilla Bazzill.  There's lots of layering and that pretty pink DP is Anna Griffin.  I made the little pink seam binding flower using a tutorial by my sweet friend Geri, at Paper Wishes.  You can find a link for it and one for how to make a rose too on her blog.  Take a look around while you're there.  She makes the most beautiful cards.
     I also used one of my new toys--a Spellbinders Lacey Circles die!  We have two Michaels near me.  The newer one, which is closer, is now carrying a great selection of Spellbinders dies but the other one has none.  Hmmmm?  Let's just say I didn't let that 50% off coupon go to waste today.  I don't think they have the Lacey Circles (I ordered that online), but they had the Lacey Squares (got that last week) and today I got some ribbon tag dies.  Can't wait to use those.  I'm still looking at a few other sets to add to my collection too.  I love dies.  Can you tell? {grin}
     Thanks for dropping by today!

  10. What a gorgeous card! The black makes everything stand out so wonderfully! Our Michaels does not carry any Spellbinders products. Perhaps there is hope that they will soon!
