I needed to make a going away card for my next door neighboor (and fellow stamper) who is moving to Charlotte, NC, next week. I used MME Magnolia paper for the bottom of the card, and stamped the flourish using rhonna ferrer flourishes:V1 across the top and bottom using Versamagic Chalk Ink in Jumbo Java. I punched out the flowers from the paper using circle punches, and mounted them on SU Chocolate Chip cardstock. I added a brad to each of the flower centers, and popped a couple up on dimensionals. I used the oval punches for the sentiment, which is stamped using Fancy Flexible Phrases on to the same DP. The ribbon is Dashes, Dots & Checks from Michaels, and I finished it by sponging around the edges with Colorbox Chalk ink in French Blue.
I will really miss having a stamping friend right next door to share our creations together. I mean how many times does a stamper live that close?!!! My plan is to convert whoever is moving in to stamping and SCS!!!!
Thanks for looking!

great details! I love how you drew the two halves together by slightly overlapping the circle over the separating ribbon. Colors are awesome, and the oval sentiment with the flower stamped on there is awesome!
