Live Your Dream with Circle of Friendship

Today I have a card for you done with the Circle of Friendship and Live Your Dream sets that I designed for a recent party. I really seem to be reaching for greens and blues cardstock quite a bit lately (there's still more greens/blues after this card, lol!) but I do love them either together or separately. : ) Perhaps it has something to do with the heat of summer and they look cool!

To begin, a Garden Green card is stamped with the Sanded background then small flowers and the butterfly from Live Your Dream are stamped on that, all in Wasabi ink. A piece of Afternoon Tea Designer Paper is stamped with the large Live Your Dream flower in Always Artichoke; this is layered on white and Groovy Guava then tied with Groovy Guava stitched grosgrain ribbon (love all these stitched ribbons that will only be around until the new catalog comes our in August!).

The Thank You from Circle of Friendship is stamped in Artichoke on white then again on a scrap of guava then punched out and layered on punched circles of Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava. This "stack" is then applied with Dimensionals to the lower right of the image layer. Viola, done! An easy Thank You card ready to send! Don't forget to stamp your envelopes... it makes your recipient anticipate opening the envelope even more! : )

Stamps: Live Your Dream, Circle of Friendship
Inks: Always Artichoke, Wild Wasabi
Paper: Garden Green, Groovy Guava, Whisper White
Accessories: Groovy Guava stitched grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals, Punches: Tag Corner, 1/2", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8".

I hope to get my card for the Technostamper Monday Sketch Challenge done and posted tomorrow. We've been gone to a family reunion since Thursday and arrived home really late last night after a two hour flight delay from Houston, then up early this a.m. to fix breakfast for my hubby. I think I'm ready for a nap! lol

Happy Monday everyone!

Beautiful! I have been using this paper a lot too, but don't have either of these sets, so it is nice to see them!
