True friend

I needed to make some Thanksgiving cards today so I pulled out my Apple Cider designer paper. I love this stuff! I have to admit tho, I did cut up a full piece of paper. But, the card bases were already cut and the topper was cut. So, those are 'technically scraps.' The paper is two sided and yummy on both sides, but I went with the river rock side because I LOVE the polka dots! You just want to touch them they look so good! The card base is river rock, the designer paper is river rock, so of course, I stamped the flowers from True Friend with .... river rock! I added a bit of sparkle with my stickles on the flowers...can't really see it here but it looks good in person. The scalloped border is done with my new Spellbinders Nestables. love it! The ribbon is some silky ribbon from my stash...probably a WalMart find. I stamped Warm Wishes in black and popped the sentiment on with dimensionals. I love monochromatic cards! They are so clean and easy. The fact that we have these awesome designer papers that not only coordinate with our stamp sets but also coordinate with our colors is one of the reasons I LOVE Stampin' Up! hey! did you know these papers on are sale this month? Buy 3 packages and get one FREE! I'm stocking up! How about you??
Have a great day!

This card is beautiful Becki. I love those papers, and that set, and I love monochromatic! It's very elegant looking. Now I'll have to get some of that darned ribbon...
