Friends 24-7


I love this new set, it is very Martha-kicked up a notch. I love the versatility of these stamps, you can either go elegant or all natural. Can't wait to experiment!
This card was for today's SCS Inspiration challenge. I used Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White cardstocks. I almost always use the Whisper White when I will be coloring. I have yet to find anything that works as well as this and I've tried quite a lot of them. I stamped the branches in Chocolate and colored them with markers. Bird was stamped in Baja and then cut out and placed on the flower branch.
The yummy ribbon is the new Valet that comes with 3 in the pack; a chocolate satin pin dot a ruched black velvety one and this Baja satin. ooo, purty. Pretties Kit pearls added to the side.

WOW!!! I am in love with this card. You're right it is very Martha. I sooooo wish my catalog would get here already. It's killing me not to be able to see things in the catalog. Last catalog it took them 2 months to get here because we're overseas. But sheesh!
