Forever Young CS43C Color Challenge

This week, the Creative-Sketches Design Team has a color challenge with a theme:  Friends. 

How many of you still keep in touch with friends from childhood?  Unfortunately, as a child (and teen) my family moved quite often with the U. S. Coast Guard, so I’ve long lost those contacts.  I have to say, I truly admire people who do… I have a couple good friends who used to color together as children, and now stamp and color together as adults.. isn’t that cool?

My DH and I only moved a few times after our children were born.  Even so, our kids are quite different about staying in touch… Our DS just doesn’t – with anyone, but our DD keeps in touch with friends from kindergarten and elementary school, back when we lived in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania at the top of a mountain!  (And, I don’t miss those cold, gray winters at all… brrrr!)

With it’s delicate branches, and playful childhood image of a girl on a swing, the Forever Young stamp set seemed to perfectly fit the theme.  “To my Friend” is from the sweet little Friendly Phrases stamp set, which has 6 greetings in all.  Both Image and greeting were stamped onto Whisper White card stock using Basic Gray Classic Ink.

I actually used three different sized brads on this card, the mini brads seemed to get ‘lost’ on the Herringbone Textured Impressions embossed poppy parade background!

And.. a 5/8” Whisper White Brad seemed the perfect proportion for the Basic Black Polka-Dot Scalloped Ribbon bow.

Although you can probably tell, LOL.. this week’s color challenge features Poppy Parade, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock.
