Miss You (Friendship)

Some crafty friends and I are members of "Our Little Crop Group" created by ourselves. We meet monthly but it always seems as if we haven't seen one another since forever! There was so much going on at our crop last weekend that I am surprised I was able to complete any projects at all but I managed to make this card.

If you're a fan of purple then this challenge is for you! Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #353 is a monochromatic color challenge using any and all purples. The guidelines allow for two neutrals to be used so I selected holographic paper with tiny silver hearts.

Onto a white card base, a panel of purple cardstock was adhered, followed by the die cut frame. The die cut flowers were adhered to silver heart patterned paper and adhered to the base using foam tape. The sentiment was stamped, die cut and matted with purple cardstock before being adhered with foam tape. The gems were added for sparkle. The inside was decorated with coordinating paper, more die cut flowers and this stamp: "Friendship isn't a big thing, it's a million little things."

Stop by the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #353 and play along with us. This challenge runs from Friday, July 26, through Wednesday, August 7, 2019.
