Stamps: Aida Background, Fun & Fast Notes
In looking at the cards I like the most, I've noticed they all have something in common..... a background added. The background on this card brings it all out.... Stampin' UP's Flannel Plaid background is an awesome background with it's "worn" look to it.
Stamps: Flannel Background, All in a Row, Sidekick Sayings
Ink: Black Stazon, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand
Paper: Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Also used was the spiral punch, silver wire embellishment, and watercolor pencils used with a blender pen.

I thought this was such an appropriate little saying for this card.... "The Road To A Friends House Is Never Long". I admit, this is the first time I've actually made a card using my AMUSE stamps that I liked! I really like the simple, little images, but they just don't work that well for me. I guess I've got to keep working with them....they've got some really cute, fun images!
The only other stamp used was my SU Aida background. Always Artichoke, white, and Purely Pomegranate paper was used, and a piece of designer paper I found in a cardstock bundle I had.... Also used were various markers, colored pencils, Signo white gel pen, and the Marvy square scalloped punch. Oh... can't forget the Purely Pomegranate stitched ribbon (I just love stitched ribbon!)
