Best Friend


I absolutely love the colors in this SU! print poetry patterned paper, so I used some precious leftover snippets to put this card together. I embossed the vertical panel with a SU! honeycomb ef, and hand-cut all the little hexes that are glued into the embossed areas. The colors are midnight muse, gumball green and daffodil delight - along with some very vanilla. The sentiment is from the SU! label love stamp set and cut with the artisan label punch. I hand-trimmed the edges of the punched element and layered it with a green mat, then put a banner behind it. The border punch is from SU, and the butterfly is a combination of 2 MB butterfly dies - the Vivienne, and Darla.

I'm entering this card into Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground #92.

That's all I have for today, so enjoy your Monday and make it a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
