Hi There - featuring Our Friendship Grows

Hello everyone!! Kari back with you to share more on my card that I made for our newest challenge that just went up yesterday!!  We are doing a summer color combo - so one of my favorites that I thought would fit the bill is Our Friendship Grows.

I first die cut all of my frame pieces from the Hello, Sunshine 6x6 - still one of my favorite paper pads!  So happy I have a backup of this one! Then, I worked on my sunflower.  I stamped it out in Memento Tuxedo Black as I used Copic Markers to color it in.  I only used 3 colors still sticking with our color combo challenge but wanting to add definition.  I am no where near an expert when it comes to coloring with Copics - but that is just it...these markers make an amateur like me look pretty decent in my opinion.  Once I was finished coloring in my sunflower, I used the coordinating die to cut it out ( thank goodness there are dies for this set!).  I prepared my card base which is the Simon Says Stamp 120 Ultra thick white card stock and I adhered my "Hello, Sunshine" scalloped piece straight down onto my card base and then I stamped my sentiment that comes from the Simon Says Stamp Stripe Greetings set and then added some Lawn Trimmings to my blue piece and then added some foam adhesive and adhered that piece down onto my card, and then added my sunflower also with foam adhesive.  For a final touch, I added some Wink of Stella ( the clear is my favorite) and some Glossy Accents.  These two together are so fun!!

I hope you are able to join us for this newest challenge!!  Can't wait to see all the beautiful projects linked up in the gallery!!  See you all next time!!
