Each Day Is A Joy With You As A Friend


 Isn't it a joy when a card just comes together so easily because you find a perfect match of elements?  I decided to use stamps from Annabelle's "Whimsy Flowers" and just by chance found this Pattern Cardstock with a Reverse side of Blue in my stash.  What is so great is how the leaves on the stamp seem to match the shape of the petals in the PP.  Using Copics, I matched the colors in the Paper to color the stamp design. Also added more color to the PP by coloring in the swirly stems.  Used the blue reverse side of PP for a punched strip and circle mat for the image. Picked up the brown in the pattern for another circle mat and card base. Added green satin ribbon and pink dewdrops. Hope you can read the sentiment ...."Each day is a Joy with You as a  Friend" ......it shows BIRL. Made envelope to match with cut outs from Pattern Paper, Hearts leftover from Punched edge, Annabelle Butterfly and Stem Stamps.
