{friend to friend} card

Hello and happy Wednesday!

I have a card to share with you!  Yes, I indeed created a card! :)

I loved the Stamping 411 sketch this week, so I just had to break out my new SU! preorder goodies and play!  Here's my card:

Isn't that patterned paper just beautiful?  It's from the upcoming Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper pack.  I love the graphic feel of the papers, although I know I'm not usually a clean and graphic kind of person. :)

I cut a piece of the DSP and sewed it onto the Whisper White and textured Rich Razzleberry pieces.  I punched a strip of Whisper White using the upcoming Lace Ribbon Border Punch, and overlapped some Early Espresso Satin Ribbon along the top.  Some stamping for my main piece, and there you go!  Three pearls to the right of the stamped piece finish the card off nicely, I think.

Hope you liked my card!  Thanks for stopping by!
