A Friend Is Like A Rainbow

Good Sunday morning all!  I have a quick and easy card to share today.  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Rose Bed embossing folder.  Next I cut two of the Stella's Borders in white.  I backed the centre section on both of them with a strip of Old Rose card and added mounting foam to the backs.  I attached them to either side of the card.  For the focal element, I used the matching Stella die cut in white.  I used an Old Rose backing for it cut from the largest die in the set, giving it a bit of an edge frame to seat the white die cut against.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the circle from the centre of the die and mounted it with foam.  I made three scrunched flowers out of Old Rose card using the Ruffled Edged Flower set.  I dabbed some glue on the flowers and sprinkled them with Diamond Frost Glitter for a touch of bling.  I accented the flowers with leaves and attached them in opposite corners.  The card was completed with white and Old Rose card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 3/4" in size.    All for now. Sue x
