Welcome to another edition of the Friday Flashback! This week's set is the super-cute Great Friend, which includes an awesome butterfly stamp. First up let's check out the archives:
The butterfly lends itself beautifully to the rock 'n' roll technique. This was a baby shower card for my friend Melissa; I made her a baby book which also included that DSP and the butterfly stamp on the first page.
I made a set of these but I can't remember now if they were thank you cards for after my birthday or if I made a set for my SU! customers. I still have one of these in my stash and it inspired a swap card I recently made (which will show up on the blog sooner or later, promise!).
And now for the all-new card!
I'm pretty pleased with it. I like how the bright colors pop on the black DSP, but of course I didn't come up with the combo on my own...I got it from another brand spankin' new challenge blog, Inkspirational:
I used Primrose Petals for my pink...I was going to go with Melon Mambo but I don't have any ribbon that color. The green is the retired In Color, Kiwi Kiss. I think it's fun to mix the new In Colors with some retired colors...but then again, I'm of the opinion that SU! should introduce 5 new colors a year and never get rid of any even if it means we have 5,426 ink colors. I like options. And LOTS of colors.
The layout is courtesy of last Friday's sketch from the good folks at Sketch Frenzy Friday:
Once again I have taken a few liberties with the sketch but the basic elements are there. What can I say? I'm a rebel.
Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by for another Friday Flashback!
