Friend to Friend

I love this sentiment - if you stop and think about it - it's just a nice simple wonderful statement to send someone on a card.

I made this for today's color challenge on Split Coast as well as this weeks Our Creative Corner sketch challenge that you can check out here. There are prizes to be won there this week but you have to load your card by Friday so be sure to check it out!The colors to use for the color challenge were Garden Green, Baja Breeze and Pacific Point or a reasonable facsimile there of!! I used a green Bazzill card stock not having any Garden Green but I did have a Stampin Up Garden Green marker so I inked up the stamps with the marker. I used Just My Type narrow cuttlebug folders for the side panels (first time using them after purchasing them almost a year ago! another 'Yay' for the New Year's Resolution!) and the Leafy Branch folder for the middle panel. I thought I was going to have trouble with this color combination but I really like it!

I've gotta go - I'm trying to get to bed early tonight (before 11 at least!)

Thanks so much for coming by today!

Way pretty, Julia!! Love what you did with the sketch. I was thinking about trying it out but just couldn't come up with anything too creative. I love how you put the sentiment in between the two circles...very cute and clever!! :)

Julia, I just love this card - funny as I never liked blues and greens together which is silly as the sky and grass in nature look so beautiful!
I must try to find those cuttlebug embossing folders you used - just gorgeous!!
