Forever Fern

This hop Teneale has given us a colour challenge.  I sure found it a challenge!

I've embossed Soft Suede cardstock using the Tasteful Textile Embossing folder and used the same coloured cardstock as my base card.  I then set about stamping and cutting out some leaves from Forever fern using the colours of the challenge.
I have used the So Sentimental stamp Your friendship is a blessing and coloured in using the Soft Suede Stampin' write marker and then my ink pad of Terracotta Tile and a blender pen to colour the word friendship.  A quick huff over the stamp and onto some white cardstock.  I used one of the dies to cut out the shape.

Behind the words I have used Whisper White ribbon and attached three pearls to give it a lift.  I then glued the leaves onto the back of the die cut and finally adhered it to the embossed cardstock using Dimensionals.  

Inside the card I have used another of the leaves stamps and stamped it in one corner.  I'm not putting anything other than a stamp or some DSP into the middle as I sell my cards at school and many people have said they like having the whole card to write on.  Works for me!

I hope you have enjoyed stopping by and now let's hop on over to see what Sharon has done for us.
