Lovely Friends Makes Me Happy!

How much do you LOVE this huge greeting!?!  Lovely Friends is another new set and it has the most beautiful phrases and greetings, this is just one of them, and look how big it is!!?!  That is a standard 5.5x4.25" card and the greeting takes up most of it!  I LOVE this sooooo much!!!!  Yesterday I shared a small teaser of what today's card would be, does that background look familiar?  You might recognize it from yesterday's card.  
I stamped the floral image from the new Wood Words stamp set and then ink blended some of our new In Colors over it (Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide).  The whole background on it's own was so strong and vibrant, which I love, but it made for adding a greeting challenging.  Finally I decided to go with some vellum and heat emboss the greeting.  The vellum tones down those bright colors a little but because the vellum is cut slightly smaller than the ink blended piece you still get those bright, fun pops of color.  So pretty!!!!!  I'm not done sharing new stuff, check back tomorrow!

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Seriously...a gorgeous card, Ruth! Did you stamp the florals in Versamark then heat emboss with white, before you spread the colors down? WOW. this is so pretty. I need to use vellum I will!
