Mojo Monday 178 - Best Friend Card




This card is dedicated to all my best friends :) Best friends are friends/sisters/brothers who are always there for you through thick and thin. They're always there to bring out the best of you:) So here's to all who stands by me and who I lean on.

I played with colors this time and just discovered that Poppy Parade (the red card) looks so good with bright colors. With this color I used SU's DSP - Ice Cream Parlor #122242 in the SAB catalogue. It's free with any $50 purchase :)
As you can see I used all the colors of the DSP and the card still looks all put together. So yummy :) You can also see how fond I am with the Owl Punch. Best investment EVER!!!!

I plan to frame this card and put it in my Hall of Fame Cards... hihi :) I'm just starting it so I can feature these at my workshops :)

To Christi, oops, I edited the stamp used. I actually used the "Full of Life" Stamp set. As I mentioned, I got this as a gift from one of my Best Friends :)
