Perennial Friendship

This is a set from the New SU! Winter Mini - Perennial Friendship. I made this card for a swap I was in (40 of them to be exact). I'm not one for mass producing, but to get the AWESOME samples back - I do it for this swapping group only!! :) They truly are some of the most talented stampers I have the opportunity of swapping with.

This card actually took a lot of thought. The set itself I found to be hard to utilize. I love flowers and such, but this set didn't jump out at me. There is only this one image of flowers and the rest are verses/greetings. Anyway - I am really pleased with how this turned out - a lot of steps, but well worth it.

Stamps:Perennial Friendship, Print Pattern BG, French Script BG
CS:So Saffron, Old Olive, WW
Ink:Basic Black, Old Olive
Other:Designer Label Punch, 1/16 Circle Punch, Double Rectangle Punch, Gold Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Narrow Organdy Ribbon - Olive, Aqua Painter, Watercolor Crayons (So Saffron, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie), Cutter Kit (distressing the So Saffron cs under the flower image), Stamping Sponge (sponged Old Olive ink on the edges of the Old Olive cs)

I'm not sure why I couldn't post the other day, but I wasn't the only one. I decided to look into it and lo and behold - found the answer. Ctrl + F5 for those who are having the same problem with not being able to upload images. Use this function on the page where you upload and the option will return. :) So glad I found the answer - it would have driven me crazy!!

This card is gorgeous!! I love the multiple backgrounds, and the little ribbon tying the bouquet!

Glad you figured out how to fix the problem, I waited a day, and mine seemed to fix/reset itself :D
