Hi friends, I'm so happy that you've joined us for our very first hop.  I'm so excited to be joining such a talented group of ladies on the PWP Design Team.  Today I have a fun little card to share with you:

Isn't that fun, I just love the PWP Frida stamp sets.  I mean come on, Frida was on a whole other level of creativity, lol.  To make this card, I started out with craft paper for the base and stamped it with Pearl colored acrylic dabber paint using the Music cling stamp.  Next I created the pink patterned paper.  I started out with cream colored cardstock, then cut it with my Cricut Sentimentals cartridge using the sparrow card.  I colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Picked Raspberry
 and Spiced Marmalade.  For some interest, I randomly stamped it with the Text Melange Cling Stamp Set and stitched around the edges.

With my background ready to go, I moved onto my focal images.  The sentiment I chose to use is a Longfellow quote from the Kind Words Cling Stamp Set and I stamped it onto a piece of muslin.  Next I stamped the curtains from the Frida Por Vida Set onto My Mind's Eye patterned paper, fussy cut them out and top them off with a strip of a K&Company border.  I did a little paper piecing on Frida.  Her skirt is stamped onto vintage sheet music.  She's pretty cute, huh!

To finish things off, I added some Prima Say it in Crystals and Recollections bling.

Then I inked all of the edges with TH Dusty Concord and doodled all over with a Faber-Castell pen and a white gel pen.


I hope you liked my Frida Friendship card!  Be sure to head on over to Shay's Blog Next!!
