A Card for a Friend

Today's card is a quick one I created using Stampin' Up!'s Friends 24-7 set. This is one set that I rely on when I'm in a funk. Ideas always come when I bring it out! Here is what I made:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Friends 24-7 set; Friendly Words jumbo wheel
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze Classic inks
Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White, Kraft, Baja Breeze, Ruby Red cardstock; Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP
Accessories: Valet Ribbon Originals, Aqua Painter, Stamping Sponges, Dimensionals

I wanted to keep the look soft and muted. I sponged around the edges of my stamped pieces and stamped off on the background images. I stamped the focal points in Choclate Chip so they would stand out and then watercolored some more color into the bird's branch and feet. I also stamped the bird onto Baja Breeze cardstock and cut him out. It brings a lot more color then watercoloring him!

Thanks for looking today! I am getting excited about this weekend... an all day-all night crop on Saturday!! I was going to scrap some pages on NSD but I think I'll probably end up sticking with cards... hee! Hopefully I'll have lots to share next week!
