FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY

This is a very simple card that I made using the card bases I bought from My Minds Eye.  I used one of the beautiful pendant dies from Spellbinders to make the doily-like centerpiece.  I cut strips of paper from the 6 x 6 pad by My Minds Eye that I purchased at Cat's Creations Scrapbooks.  The stamp is from the August 2011 Kit of the Month, "What I Know".  I loved the font used on this stamp.  So beautiful.  I inked the die cut with a powder puff chalk ink pad. 
This is another card I made from the other set of card bases by My Minds Eye that I purchased.  This features a tag that I made using the Fancy Tags set of dies by Spellbinders.  The "live" banner/tag is from a Simple Stories itty bitty, "Year-o-graphy Banners" by Unity and the happily ever after is from the "Heartfelt Sentiments" set by Unity.  I love both of these sets of stamps.  The grey strip of paper is some of the embossed "Two Scoops" paper from Bazzill.  I used Archival Ink by Ranger for my stamping.  The heart brad is from my stash.
