Fabulous Friend

Good Day.  I'm really feeling under the weather with a migraine today.  Don't know what's worse though ~ the migraine or the side effects of the meds that I take for it. blah!

So, I thought I'd spend the morning in my stamp room, hoping beautiful inks, cardstock & stamps would pick me up a bit! :-)

This card was inspired by the latest Papercrafts magazine.  My take on the colour challenge was Taken With Teal, Old Olive or Certainly Celery, So Saffron & Kraft. I did try to use the Kraft as my base card but it really made the whole card look washed out. I'll try to find the colour palette and add to this post.

The designer paper is retired, the frame is an old old stamp that I purchased when I first started stamping about 4 years ago, I'm not sure who even makes it. :-)  I used brads and ribbon from my stash, along with So Saffron grosgrain, the Eyelet border punch and nestabilities for my frame.

Thank you for dropping by and hope your Wednesday is Wonderful :-)

Beautiful card Debbie. I always liked this paper and I like how you created the frame of branches around the words. Great job! Hope you're feeling better - from a fellow migrane sufferer.
