{ Impression Obsession DT challenge #16 - Friendship, 2 Sketches 4 You }

A FRIEND © Breena C. Park
A friend is like a flower, rose to be exact, Or maybe like a brand new gate that never comes unlatched. A friend is like an owl, both beautiful and wise. Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost, whose spirit never dies. A friend is like those blades of grass you can never mow, standing straight, tall, and proud in a perfect little row. A friend is like a heart that goes strong until the end. Where would we be in this world if we didn't have a friend.

I had to find a cute little poem since our challenge is Friendship. I am using Kazan's sketch #22 for my card. I have been using my American Crafts paper stash all week, trying to use it up. I used Flowers and Friendship stamp set for the beautiful quote and the flowers.

I created my "sun" with the large scalloped circle stamp from Circle Elements #1 stamp set. I stamped the little dots border, from Lucky Ladybugs set, for the sun's rays. The smaller scalloped circle and the flower center is from Circle Elements set, as well. They are stamped on white cardstock and cut out. I wanted to create dimension with the circle center and for that I used foam adhesive. The flowers are stamped and cut out. I colored them with soft pastel pencils.

I hope you can take a little time to blog-hop to see the beautiful creations by the other Impression Obsession designers: Kelli, Dina, Julie, Laura , Tina, Shirley and Michelle.
