For a true blue friend's birthday, I attempted several challenges. Color Challenge #213: So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa and Sketch Challenge #223. The Ways to Use it Challenge asked for the use of labels. When I think of a true blue friend, I think of the Bible verse from Proverbs 17:17 "A friend loves at all times". To match the brads in the corners, I used a silver label to put the Bible verse reference. Also, I think of a comfortable pair of jeans. So, the card base is stamped with the background stamp Just Jeans. The Limited Supplies Challenge asked for sets of three. This is part I hope that I got this right. Sets of three: colors - saffron, cocoa, blue; three layers - designer paper, cocoa, stamped image; three stamps: true blue friend, small love, Just Jeans; accent of three brads. Also, friend stamp has three words: true blue friend, which is inked in bashful blue & versa mark (with just a touch of brocade blue on the words so that they would show up) and then stamped & embossing in clear powder. Inside the card, I plan to write something like: just like an comfortable pair of jeans that I love and have been with me forever, you have been a true blue friend through it all. A friend who loves at all times!
