Wings of Friendship

I made this card with the awesome FTL93 sketch in mind, although I didn't exactly stick with clean and simple. I do love how this card came out, but I also plan to try again on this sketch and do it justice better.

My stamped image from Wings of Friendship stamp set is stamped in black craft ink then embossed with clear powder. I trimmed it so just a tiny bit is "out of the box" on the right edge. The sentiment (on Kiwi Kiss) is from the retired set "Designer Label" and is also embossed.

What do you think of this color combo (did I say that yesterday too?!)? It is Cool Caribbean (oh yeah, do you have any of that leftover??), Certainly Celery, Kiwi Kiss and Pumpkin Pie. Funny thing is originally I was going for all greens and blues (had Old Olive out also) and a watery theme (like whale from Pun Fun) plus a totally different sketch. Isn't that wild how things take a turn or two?! Once I put the Pumpkin Pie striped ribbon on there (thanks Lisa!) I knew it worked- at least for me. I don't think to use black very often so I went out of my way to get it in there today- knowing I wanted some drama.

Anyway, I hope you like it too. Thanks for stopping by!
