Glad We're Friends

I made this card for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge which actually asks participants to use colours from their Color Made Easy Collections.  Unfortunately, these are not available here in Australia so I have used paper and card in colours as close as I could find!  I started with paper from Kaisercraft's Secret Admirer paper pad and layered it onto aqua card.  Then I die cut brown card with Spellbinders largest Floral Doily Motif and adhered on top of that a die cut circle of Stampin' Up! Regal Rose card, sliced off part of one side and adhered it to my card front.  Next, I stamped a sentiment from Flourishes Botanical Bookplates Vol 2 onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic E50, layered it onto aqua card and adhered it to the bottom right side.  Then I cut a strip of aqua paper, layered it onto brown card and stuck it to the left side.  Lastly, I stamped the image from the same stamp set, coloured it with copics, die cut it with Flourishes Classic Bookplate Template Die (which I found under my Christmas Tree!), popped it up with foam tape, added some Kaisercraft Hot Pink pearls and I was finished!

Copic Colours used were:  BG11, BG13, R81, R83, R85, YG00, YG03, E27, E50, Y11, Y15

Thanks for having a look!
