Best Friend Card Challenge

Today, Nicole's challenge was to make a card for your best friend. She's got a fun prize - 2 kits so you can make cards with your BFF! :-)

I really loved my ribbon skirt on yesterday's card, so I tried it again on today's card. I really love black, white, and hot pink so I decided to go with that color combo. I created the striped paper using the Faux Ribbon set - I stamped the black stripes and then went back with the Raspberry Fizz ink for the dotted stripes. Then I trimmed down my "designer paper" and added the ribbon skirt along one side. I mounted that on a piece of True Black cardstock and wrapped a piece of Raspberry Fizz twill around the "seam". I used the Fresh Alphabet set to make the "BFF" sentiment at the top. It was all easy peasy!

Supplies all by Papertrey Ink:
Cardstock: White, True Black
Ink: Black & Raspberry Fizz
Ribbon: Raspberry Fizz Twill & Swiss Dot
Stamps: Faux Ribbon, Fresh Alphabet
