Fresh for the New Year

Hi Everyone it's Teresa today and I am sharing a Friendship 
card that I did to finish out the New Year.  It has been a wonderful
year from me and this week gives me the chance to look back
and appreciate all that I did and good things that happened for the 
past year--- whether it be new friendships, family or an abundance
 of great memories! And now--- we get to look forward to a creative
 and prosperous New Year for 2014!

So my card today was made for a very special friend that I have
a had for a very, very long time.  I wanted to give her something really
 fancy and feminine so I used my favorite Gentle Thoughts stamp #5958 
and some of my favorite Spellbinders dies that you can get from
Quietfire's online store.  I used Mad Tea Party paper by 
Marion Smith for the base and a mix of pink and green patterned
papers and card stock to cut out my dies and the leaves and flowers.

The Spellbinders Gold Majesty Circles die had the perfect opening
 to stamp the friendship sentiment in the center with dark green ink
 and emboss it with clear embossing powder. 

To make the flowers I cut layers of petals from
the SB Rose Creation Die set and scrunched them and curled 
them and then glued them on top of each other.  The leaves
are from the Foliage die set and I also curled them just a little.
The other tiny foliage die is a fun one to fill in for flowers
called Corner Sprigs.  After I got my arrangement the way 
I wanted it, I glued it down with lots of foam dots and glue dots to 
really secure it.  I added a pretty white bow and some chunky glitter 
with clear adhesive all around the tops of the flowers. To finish 
it i added some tiny pink rhinestones just to make glisten 
a little bit more.  I hope that she likes it.. it was really fun to make.

Here is a photo of the stamp set for you to see:

We all hope your Holiday was really special and we
look forward to sharing lots of great Quietfire Design
inspiration with all of you in 2014!
