My Friend

It's the long weekend and I can't believe where the summer has gone!!  How can that be? 
Here is the card I am showing today...getting ready for the Fall to arrive and school to start on Tuesday.  I used the new Foliage Fancy from Penny Black for the leaves.  They are really neat because there is a solid and and an outline for each leaf in the set.  That gives you so many options in using that set.  For my card what I did was stamp the outlines first randomly around the outside of my card and then embossed with white powder.  Then I took the solid image and applied various colours of Distress inks and sprayed with water before stamping on top of the outline.  I was very pleased with the colour variations I was able to achieve.  I added the lines and the Friendship sentiment to finish it off.
I am adding this to the Movement challenge at Moxie Fab.
I hope you enjoy a wonderful wknd. and thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Distress inks/ pearls/ fine line black marker/ white embossing powder
