My Friend


Doesn't this image remind you of that movie "Beaches" with Bette Midler where she sings "Wind Beneath my Wings"? 

This card was made for the {Embellish Magazine} color challenge, using these colors:


...and we are to make it quirky, cutesy and clean.  I'm not so sure that my card meets ANY of those requirements, but after I found this adorable digital stamp at Digital Two for Tuesday and colored it using the challenge colors, I wanted to share it anyway.  I used Webster's Pages, Cosmo Cricket and K&Company papers for the background, stamped my sentiment, part of one from a Hero Arts clear set, and then added a peach ribbon and a cream button.  For me, this is clean!
