I Wouldn't Have Missed Being Your Friend - Bonnie Garby, Guest Designer

Hi everyone.  I'm Bonnie Garby from Make Time to Craft and I'm guest designing for Quietfire Design this month.  Today I'm back with a card featuring the wonderful 'I wouldn't have missed being your friend for anything' stamp.  What a lovely quote for a card for a dear friend.

This time I started with a 5-1/2" square card base.  I stamped my beautiful sentiment on white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  I die cut around the sentiment with the Large Silver Circle Pierce and Cut Tool and the Circle Classic Large Stacker die, both from Cheery Lynn Designs.

For the background I cut a 5" square piece of white cardstock and backed it with Stick It adhesive.  I centered the Lords & Commons Square Doily from Cheery Lynn Designs on the right side of the cardstock and cut it out.  I then adhered the die cut to a piece of gray cardstock and trimmed leaving a narrow border.  I then added layers of yellow and gray.  Then I wrapped a piece of Metal Grey Diamond Satin around the center of the card and secured in back.  Then I added a layer of white mulberry paper and attached the panel to the card base.  Next I cut a piece of Yellow and Gray Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and dove tailed the ends.  Then I layered that piece over the diamond satin ribbon layer.  Then I attached the sentiment panel to the center of the card front using foam tape.
I created my roses with the Medium and Large Rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I cut the flower layers from white cardstock and inked the layers with yellow ink.  I sponged the edges with gray ink to define them.  I cut the Tiny Fanciful Flourish Right and Left from Cheery Lynn Designs out of green cardstock.  I attached the flourishes and roses below the sentiment.

I created a bi-color double-loop bow using Lemon Delicate Stitched Satin and Metal Gray Diamond Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon on the Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool and attached it above the sentiment.

I love finishing off a card with the perfect bow and this bi-color double-loop bow is a real show stopper.

What a beautiful design! I usually don't like grey ( too many Midwest clouds in my past) but the yellow & white certainly cheer it up. Fabulous use of textures, too. Love!
