Beautiful Friend

Everybody loves Nina B!  We are having a blog hop to celebrate her designs that were carried by The Angel Company.  I was able to get one of her sets before The Angel Company went out of business, it is called "Beautiful Lace".  It is one of my favorite sets and I use it often.  Nina B now has a line of her designs available through Layers of Color.

I always head to my scrap bin first and I found light blue cardstock that was card front size.  I used the large doily image with SU's Baja Breeze ink to make a background print.  The flowered paper was also in the scrap bin and I have been wanting to use it 'cause it's pretty.  The end of the piece was just large enough to punch out a decorative label that I used the phrase "Beautiful Friend" on (also in set).  I centered it on another punch and placed a bow over the corner where there was a leaf from the printed paper.  Now you know my secret, but it makes it look like I had a solid to match the dp.  I sponged the edges of the punches with purple ink and mounted them on pop dots to give it dimension (you can't see it in the picture, but it is there).  The ribbons and laces were from my sewing scrap box.  I was disappointed that the colors on my card don't look as beautiful in the pictures as they do in person, but I am not a professional photographer.
