Friendship Makes Life Colorful

This is a Friendship Card using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #115 using the Colorful inspiration picture from The Outlawz - Tuesday Color Challenge.    All pieces on this card are made from the CTMH Paperpak "Taste of Summer."  Instead of using the stamp to fill in the flowers with color, all flowers were stamped with black ink on the Design paper, fussy-cut and then layered with 3D Thin Foam Tape onto the background design paper.  The Bands are the Zip Strip from the same paperpak.  The leaves were cut from Cricut Design Space.  Small Flowers were added across the Zip Strip for the scalloped border and a larger flower placed on the Zip Strips instead of a bow. Sentiment stamped on background paper with gypsy ink.

Love your bright colors. The little flowers on the strip are delightful! What a great way to do that part of the sketch.

Dena, thank you for your compliments. The paper is "Taste of Summer" but you would never know it because I used all the back sides for this card.

Love it! The fussy cutting is amazing. I do not have the patience for that much, I can do one or two but not that much! Thanks for playing along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC)!
