Today’s Bring Back Beautiful challenge is all about friendship. Make sure you check out the Flourishes blog and the new team members! They are amazing stampers and I can’t see what they will create.

For my sample I used a sentiment from Sweet Days of Summer. It was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the third smallest of the Large Classic Oval Nestabilities die. The edges were first  sponged with Antique Linen, then with a  Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. The oval was layered on a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Label 13 Nestabilities die, then on white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Persian Motifs Shapeabilities die (I thought it would go great with the sentiment. It almost looks like a sun die, doesn’t it?).

Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two patterned paper was cut and embossed with the largest Classic Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched. Seam binding was tied around the paper square before it was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Lg. Scallop Square Nestabilities die. The card front was adhered to a card base, cut and embossed with the same large Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

A button was tied to the bow with  Linen Thread. Rhinestones from Baby Bling and Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
