For My Friend

Happy Wednesday All!

Another week of our summer almost over! Hope you are having a good week. I know I'm already looking forward to the weekend. It's been super hot here and hopefully it will cool down a bit by the end of the week.

I created a card for fun and challenges today. I've been busy lately with DT work and other stuff, so I just wanted to make a card for the fun of it. Sometimes you just need to stamp but for no other reason than to stamp! I'm not sure what I'll do with this one, but it works for a friend card.

I used the sketch challenge over at Whiff of Joy challenges to do the layout for this card. I went with a purple and green color combo, which is one of my favorites. This week PaperTake Weekly is celebrating it's 100th challenge and you can choose your favorite challenge to submit for this week. I don't remember the number of the challenge, but a few weeks ago the challenge was to use your favorite colors. I used Eggplant and Amethyst cardstock with Wisteria BasicGrey papers.

The image is one I received from a friend and it's been colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen and a Spica glitter pen. I chose this image to fit with The Pink Elephant's Summer themed challenge.

I embellished with some Prima flowers, buttons to fit the ABC Challenge B is for Button challenge and then grosgrain ribbon and gingham ribbon with a charm. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Simply Said sentiment set.

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm off now to have some lunch and relax a bit with the kids. Have a great afternoon. Happy stamping! :)
