Best Friend Ever

Hello, everyone!

Today I made this card for this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens. The requirements were: die cut using its negative space, colors of purple and white, a textured layer and some leaves.

For the base I used white card stock. I added a purple layer which was embossed  with a lattice pattern. (I never labeled the EF so I don't know the name or manufacturer). 

My focal point was created with Marianne Creatables Small Ovals by Petra. In the center of the oval I used Memory Box Wild Blooms die to create the negative space left by the die cut. The leaves in the corners were cut with Marianne Creatables Anja's Vintage Swirls. The sentiment, from GKD Stately Flowers 7, was stamped with Memento ink.

Until next time, I hope your weekend starts out great and ends even better! Have a creative one!
