Wonderful Friend

Have you had a girl friend, who you are just so close to, that you should have been sisters? Well, I am blessed to have a few of those. Two of my 'sister' make their own cards and sell them. Shocking, huh? that we know each other. Anyway, they have started their venture with Stampin' Up! and I wanted to send them a quick & easy card to both congratulate them individually, and have a sample card on hand. Sometimes, your eye just likes clean and simple. You know what I mean? Sometimes, extra stuff, is just too much stuff.
Anyways, this card is made with Chocolate Chip card stock as the base. A 4" x 5 1/4" pattern paper (Greenhouse Gala #117167) was adhered to the front of the card. I stamped the saying on a scrap piece of white card stock, matted it on a scrap piece of Pear Pizzazz, did a 'fancy' scallop edge to one side and added one of the new half pearls. (Oh, I 'colored' the half-pearl with a chocolate chip marker and then heat set it.) To give the piece a little shimmer, I sprayed it with my frost white shimmer paint that I made into a spray. Used some dimensionals to get this piece off the card front. Pretty simple, and pretty quick! :)
Thank you for looking! Please leave a comment, as they always make me smile. And Congrats to B. & S.! You both will do a wonderful job!
