Papertrey Friendship Challenge

I'm a bit later than I planned today, but I'm here none the less. Today's Papertrey challenge was to make a card for your best friend. I'm not telling who this card is going to just in case she happens to read this. You know who you are...

I stamped the large daisy from Floral Frenzy onto Ripe Avocado cardstock. The stem was stamped in Ripe Avocado as well. I like the leaf from Floral Frenzy, but I wanted a softer look so I used the larger leaf from Green Thumb instead. The sentiment is from Faux Ribbons. My entire stamped panel was layered with a piece of Linen Vellum Cardstock and mounted to the card using foam tape. Three brads and sheer yellow ribbon round out today's greeting. Only a few short days until the release!

Cardstock: Ripe Avocado, Linen Vellum - Papertrey Ink; Ultimate White - Strathmore, yellow - Bazill
Patterned Paper: Cottage Collection - Chatterbox (I don't know if this is available anymore or not)
Ink: Burnt Umber - Palette; Frost White - Colorbox; Ripe Avocado - Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Floral Frenzy, Faux Ribbon, Beautiful Blooms - Papertrey Ink
Tools: Scalloped Border Punch - Martha Stewart Crafts
