Friends in Saffron

What a difference the Vintage Wallpaper textured impressions folders has on the base of this card! Originally I had stamped on the card base with So Saffron ink with another image from Just Believe (I just flipped the card over so the back of this card has the stamped images on it! he he) but the stamped image was not dramatic enough! So it was sandwiched through the Big Shot and voila!

The purple image with flowers was trial and error as well. First I tried Perfect Plum, but that purple was not dark enough for the card and it also had two So Saffron brads in the centres of the flowers. Then it was stamped in Concord Crush without brads, it still did not look right. Lastly I coloured the stamp with Stampin' Write markers to get the best look.
