We Are The Best of Friends

So, I was able to finish a second card and it is just a little after midnight, October 2nd.  This time around, my technique was a bit simpler and I followed a sketch, a color, and a themed challenge to get me going in the right direction.

I started with a white card stock base and brush inked the entire background with my new burgundy Darice stamping pad.  I inked the edges dark and around the oval as well.  I added a satin ribbon and a cotton chain link ribbon.  I then used pop dots behind a scallop cut from leather brown textured card stock using my Cricut Cartridge, Lacy Labels (You and Me) at 4".   I cut parchment card stock using my  oval pattern Creative Memories tool.  The image in the center of the oval is from the  Inkadinkado Utopiary collection of clear stamps.  The sentiment is a vellum tag I received in a box of Blog Candy I had won a while back.

Theme challenge that I followed:   Inking It Up Crazy - Friendship Card (WCMD #7)
Sketch challenge that I followed:  Deconstructing Jen - Sketch #21
Color challenge that I followed:  Play Date Cafe - #101 Wine, Smudge, Leather, & Parchment
