Friends Till the End

I used the Friends Till the End stamp set by Papertrey Ink to make this card, I love the big statement that the big bloom makes.
I masked off the base card to leave a broad strip then stamped the big bloom in black ink across the strip. I then added thin black ribbon to the top and bottom of this strip.
I added the red ribbon to the top of the card(see below for details) then on separate card I stamped the bloom and the leaves coloured in Copic Sketch Markers then cut these out and added to the left corner of the card with foam pads.
Lastly I stamped the sentiment on the bottom right of the card with black ink.


Attention to detail...

I used a very strong double sided tape across the top of the card then pleated the ribbon making it a little higgle de piggildy so that it didn't look uniform.



Flower coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. A pearl button and a few black diamond stickles were added to make the center pop.

I love everything about your card --- except the apostrophe in "friends". Not your mistake, I know.

WOW!!! The most stunning card! Munster's right about the apostrophe in 'friends' though. Shouldn't be there but, as she says, not your fault. That's PTI not being careful enough - LOL!!
