Wings of Friendship

I was so excited to finally get my sneak peek box of goodies yesterday! After I flipped through the new catalog a few times I got busy and played with my favorite new things. Here is the first card I made.

This is a Level 2 Hostess set called Wings of Friendship. It's a set of four and I used all the images here. (had to test them all out, right?) I also used my favorite new In Color - Rich Razzleberry along with Melon Mambo and Always Artichoke. I wasn't too sure I would like Melon Mambo, just seeing it on my computer screen, but in real life I like it a lot...it looks like juicy, ripe watermelon.

This year there is Polka-Dot Grosgrain ribbon available in each of the six new In Colors. I used Rich Razzleberry ribbon on my card. I just love polka dots, and the ribbon is really nice and soft and so easy to work with. Guess what else is offered in the In Colors? A set of markers! I used those here to color my main image. I then cut the bird and his wing out and popped them up for extra dimension. There are a lot of great new things available in the upcoming catalog...already have my wish list going and can't wait to put in my first order in July!

Thanks for stopping by today...check back soon for more sneak peeks.

Beautiful! I love how you used the stamps as backgrounds. I never would have thought to use the Artichoke with these colors, but it looks divine!
