Take Three

I am finally posting my card I swapped for convention... I am a little behind. =)

This card is based on Mary's card from her Stampin' Pretty blog. (She is soooo talented!)

I used one of my favourite colour combos - Real Red, Taken with Teal & Chocolate Chip (with a little Whisper White). For the friendship square I used the Take Three set to form a square. TIP: A stamp-a-ma-jig is ESSENTIAL for this to make sure you get an even square. I used my Stampin' Write markers to individually colour the flowers and the words separate colours. The middle of the square is filled with a 1 3/8" square of chocolate chip cardstock made with my handy Stampin' Up punch and the flower is punched from Taken With Teal cardstock using the 5 petal flower punch. (I only recently got this punch and now I don't know how I ever got along without it!)

The background is stamped using the Pretty Petals background stamp, (found on the Dormant List during this catalogue,) and a Versamark ink pad. The piece de la resistance is some Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon. Hope you like!
