a couple of best friends

today i have a card to share that just made for the play date cafe challenge
this time, the colors are super pretty and soft! 

i have to admit i was staring at my brand new mama elephant stamps and i just really wanted to get them inky and play! and then the idea came into my head for a best friend (aka friendship) card! and i really like it! i want to run and put it in the mail today!!! ...but no mail today, tomorrow though! :)

so here's my card:

i used the cosmic stars and smitten stamp sets for the card - LOVE!!!! 
the little gemini's are paper pieced and popped up for dimension. and i even added a little blush to their cheeks with 1 of my 5 copic markers! lol! 

the doily is literally from a restaurant!!! they were the 'coasters' and i snagged them for scrapping!! (who needs coasters? napkins it is!) i think i may have a problem! lol! but i'm so glad i did, because i think it adds to the femininity of the card! 

the yellow banners are cut from a MFT banner die, and the pink is some washi - i tried, but just couldn't NOT use washi. i have so much! and i love it , so i want to use it! lol!

so that's it! 


  1. LOL--love that sentiment! This is just a darling card! Fabulous for that special friend! :) If you have some time, I'd love for you to come join in our challenges at Inkspirational and Technique Tuesday! HUGS and have a great week! :)
