Friends Are Treasures

Thankful for friends is how I feel. I made this card simply by rolling my Jumbo Wheel loaded with Friendly Words in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock. Then I rolled it again using Ruby Red ink. Then I cut out the words "True Friends," and just used my tape runner to attach that piece over the black and white words. Next, I made the Ruby Red flower middle by cleaning my wheel well, then using a Ruby Red Stampin' Write marker to color only that flourish. I stamped it onto Whisper White paper and punched it out with a 5/8" circle punch. I attached it to a flower from the Birds and Blooms Die and then attached that to the Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon using some floss from my stash.  On top of the Basic Black background strip I created, I added a Ruby Red strip of Eyelet Border punched card stock. 

I hope you like this card and you will leave your comments below. I love reading all of them.
