Hello Friend Card

Here is a card I made recently, that is one of my favorite color combinations.
It is heavily inspired by one of my favorite card makers, Jill Foster.
I used my new spellbinders die for the first time for that inverted scallop circle, and I have certainly been giving my colored pencils a workout lately and I'm loving it!

Technique tip: To get the string to wrap around the card, I cut a small slit in the spine of the card, and threaded the twine through it.
I don't have a lot of flower stamps, so I have been experimenting using the same stamps over again in different ways to get different looks. Stamping off-center like this is one way to get a new look from an old stamp.
For this card, because the base is darker, I added a white piece to the inside to give place to write, and decorated it with more of the same stamp.

Thanks for looking, and don't forget to leave a comment!
