Our second challenge is another one that I know you will want to enter - Friendship Inspiration! We would like you to make a card having to do with FRIENDSHIP, and we want you to use colors inspired by this awesome photo that Jennipher found:
I had some trouble with the lighting on this, but my dp really is the same teal color as the Maya Road Ribbon that I used at the bottom. I love, love, love that ribbon. I wish I had it in every color. It kind of looks like it overpowers the card in this pic, but it really doesn't. It has to do with the angle of the card in the photo, I think. My base card is made from teal cardstock that I cut to the 5 1/2 x
5 1/2 size that I make so often. I then used some gorgeous paper from My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found Two" Collection. I was really inspired by the photo, because I wasn't only thinking of color, but I was thinking of the layers of the covers. So my next layer is some yummy chocolate cs with brown hearts on it. I distressed the edges of both of these layers. Then I got to cheat, because the frame (including the birdie) was cut out from the MME dp. It even had the teal glitter on the edge of the frame! How cool is that? I then stamped the sentiment (from Our Daily Bread Designs Friendship Set) in brown Inkadinkado Ink onto cream colored Neenah Paper, and I heat embossed it with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I simply adhered it to the back of the cut out frame and added the little flower embellie from my stash. I added a brown photo corner from my stash and a Prima flower to one corner and teal self-adhesive pearls to the other. Finally, I added layered a light blue heart rub-on over a brown background rub-on, both from Pink Paislee. Oh yes, can't forget the Teal Stickles! lol Here is a close-up so you can see the glimmer a little better:
