Friend In Bloom...

Quick post today! Helping my hubby mend after Lasik surgery yesterday. Unfortunately for him, he had the more painful PRK procedure, which doesn't hurt much for the first day, but pain will kick in later today and tomorrow is supposedly the worst. Anyhow, I did a few cards up this weekend with a few new stamp sets I received from Papertrey Ink. In Bloom and Friends til' the End were paired with this layout. There is also PTI-heart prints bg used here, but the photo doesn't show it very well. I stamped the heart prints in SU! pretty in pink BEFORE I stamped the white flowers. There are many white inks to use in paper crafting. My preference is White Cloud (Dew Drops) with this bright pink cs from SU! I stamped "friend" with Tea Leaves (Dew Drop) and sprinkled with clear embossing powder before heating. A little faux stitching and some adhesive rhinestones finish the sentiment.
This layout is probably my favorite of the 2.
Love PTI-petal power bg set. I cut out a large flower (same ink and design as what is on the pink card portion) and wanted to add a little extra depth. To achieve extra depth, I traced the insides on my flower with my Dark Pink (flower) and Pea Green (leaves) copic markers. Once I colored them in, I cut them out and used 3-D foam for even more depth.
Happy crafting!
