Note to Friend {CCMC186}

Another very quick post before I'm off to Mexico Sunday for work...really hate these last minute unplanned trips ... especially when I have to interrupt my weekend of stamping!
This post is for the sketch challenge {#186} over at Create with Connie and Mary and here the sketch.
My card is pretty easy to follow and it's another note for my sweet SIL gal pal that is very ill but I like to let her know she is always on my mind. Here is my card.
This card is made with wisteria wonder cs embossed with the square lattice EF and rounded corners. I layered with 'berry blossoms' DSP. I folded up the bottom and of the DSP to show the coordinating side, stamped "FRIEND" in basic black, then wrapped a piece of lucky limeade ribbon at the seam and glued down.
I stamped the dress form from 'established elegance' and then used the 'designer frames' oval EF over the image. I cut the oval out and distressed the edges. I painted the top of the dress form with a few drops of  calypso coral reinker  added to some dazzling details.
But hey......... pretend you don't see how sloppy my brush strokes are once it dried! Seriously I didn't see that when it was wet. [smile]. I popped up the oval with dimensionals.
The blossom is a 5 petal punch pierced in the center, then lined with sticky strip. I wrapped and twisted the coral ribbon around and tucked in the end. Then added an antique brad to the center, and glued dots were used to attach to the front. 
A peek at the inside of my note using 'happy greetings' for the sentiment and images from 'established elegance' stamp sets.
Done!
Hootie says " Hoot Hoot Hooray... Thanks for stopping by today."     
Please leave a comment with your thoughts; I hope you will stop by again!"

Di I love this card and so will your SIL. What a great idea to fold the DSP up at the bottom to show the reverse side and the corset glittered up is fabulous not to even mention the ribbon flower, just gorgeous, a lovely card!

Such a beautiful card Diane. I am sure that your SIL will love it. I love what you did with the ribbon to make a center for the flower. Might have to give it a try. I hope you get to enjoy some time in the sun while you are in Mexico. It's snowing here today....and I'm longing for spring
