Old Friends

To see the Stampin Sisters in Christ post please scroll down to the Sunday post!

I really love these soft spring colors. The Kraft color seemed to compliment it well too.

I stamped the image on colored paper from Basic Grey. I twas a very faint shading and I really like how that turned out. I colored the image very lightly with Copics so that it wouldn't bleed through. I used the same paper for the sentiment. The ribbon and bow was from a collection of bows that I had - I just took one bow apart and used it as a ribbon. Oh we card-makers are a crafty bunch of skin-flints aren't we? Hee, hee!



Thanks for looking and for the comments!
