Dream For a Friend

This card is for the Ways to Use It challenge at SCS today. The challenge was to use a white gel pen in new ways to you. Well, not hard for me to do since I haven't used one before.

I didn't get very creative and just added some white dots around my scallops. I am not fond of my white gel pen, so I never use it. I need to get one that works better.

The daisys are from Flowers For Daisy (Gina K Designs) and are colored with Koh-i-noor pencils. I cut the flowers out and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.

"Dream" is from Botanical Gardens (Gina K Designs) and the Friend to Friend sentiment is from Pocket Silhouettes (Stampin' Up).

The top layer is glossy white cardstock that I sponged with So Saffron and Certainly Celery. The purple layer is Almost Amethyst that I sponged the edges of with Almost Amethyst ink. The card base is Certainly Celery.

I am still working on the SLTL challenge card. Wish me luck!

I don't know how to do that telepathy thing to dream for a friend:-)

When you posted this, I saw it in the reader and I thought it was for the inspiration challenge. The colors are all in there. I love that green and purple combination. Very beautiful!

I love the cut out flowers-beautiful! I love my white gel pen. I am actually on my 3rd one after using all the ink out of the other 2! I use it mostly for dots, stitches, and scrapbook journaling. I wish I had a vanilla gel pen-any such creature?

What a beautiful card. I love the 3d effect on the flowers. I visited your gallery on Splitcoast and had to come to your blog to see more.
