For My Sweet Friend!

Happy Thursday!  WOW!  The week is almost over.   I thought I would pop in with a quick card.  I am playing along with a few SCS Challenges as well as ODBD Shining the Light Challenge.

For ODBD Shining the Light Challenge(ODBDSLC162), we are to use white/cream and one other color.  I chose Royal Velvet.  It is a deep rich purple.  I combined this challenge with a few SCS Challenges.  This week's Sketch Challenge(SC445) is to choose a sketch from all the past sketches.  I chose sketch(SC428).
I combined the sketch with today's Way To Use it Challenge(WT436).    It is all about chevrons.  For the sketch, I chose to cut out the background shape and actually layer with the negative space.  Before I did that, though, I added my vintage cream chevrons and embossed the outside frame.  I am using ODBD  Be Joyful and Sisters single stamps.  I embossed the focal image and used Memento grape ink on the sentiment.  I did add a bow to the card topped with a prima flower.

 As always thanks so much for stopping by!
