My Best Bud - Flourishes Friday Free For All


Hi, all, welcome to Flourishes Friday Free For All! Today I have another card using two of the recently released sets. The gorgeous filigree heart is from From the Heart and the sentiment is from Heartlines. Pretty clean and simple and I think this would work just great for a guy—in fact, I think this is going to be my Valentine to my sweet DH this year—after all, he *is* my best bud.

I stamped the heart image on
Classic White card stock with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, then the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I matted it with black card stock and tied the red and black gingham ribbon around before adhering the three heart-shaped pearls.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Flourishes team has for you!
