Special Friend

I have been playing again with my new ink thingies sorry I mean paper soft colour ink pots and some favourite old stamps of mine - and this is the result.  Its on an 8x8 card from Craftwork Cards and I layered all the little squares onto Ritzy Chocolate cardstock to make them really jump off the card.

I love the colour combination of the pink, orange and green.  The photo does not show it but I have glimmer misted everything, if you stand still for too long in my house at the moment you stand a chance of being sprayed - you have been warned boys!

I found some orange chipboard letters I bought years ago, I added some more colour, stamped them and then sprayed them, of course!

I tried ribbon around 3 of the squares and punched some daisies from the spare paper that I made and added those gorgeous silver flower centres.

Check by tomorrow to see the gift I made to go with this card!
