Glad We're Friends! - Inspire Create Challenge #49

How cute is this little fella?! It was International Friendship Day last week, did you know? nor me!  I was very lucky to receive a beautiful hand made card from a friend who is also one of my team. There's nothing like getting an unexpected card is there? So this one's for her.

Card for International Friendship day using the Fable Friend stamp set and Glad we're friends for the Inspire Create Challenge #49

This time the Inspire Create Challenge is all about colour.  I love a colour challenge because it's sometimes colours I wouldn't think to put together or to use colours I don't seem to use very often which is definitely the case here with Mango Melody. I love it!

Fable Friends stamps set including rabbit image. Stampin Up

At first glance, this stamp set shouts New Baby, Easter, and Spring but it's really versatile and has this lovely "glad we're friends" sentiment too.

How It's Made

The card base is Mango Melody card 10.5 x 14.9 cm
Pool Party layer 10 x 14.3 cm
Whisper White layer 9.5 x 13.8 cm

I stamped the rabbit in Memento Black ink and lightly coloured him in using a Basic Gray Watercolour pencil and a Blender pen.
His jacket is coloured in using a Mango Melody Stampin Write Marker.
The flower was stamped and fussy cut out and coloured using a Light Pool Party Blend
I stamped another rabbit image on a scrap of card and cut the hands out which I glued on after tucking the flower behind so that he "holds" it.
Two stitched rectangles are cut from Whisper White card, and the stamping of the flowers was done and coloured in with Pool Party and Mango Melody before raising on the double-sided adhesive foam strips.
The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody ink.
I used the background flower stamp from the Bloom and Grow stamp set or you could use any you have in your stash.

This card is perfect to send to my friend, it says it all. I hope you like it. Do let me know in the comments.
