Great Impressions Stamps - Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card that I made using Help From Your Friends (G78) from Great Impressions Stamps.  Aren’t these critters cute? 


2013-01-21 GI Friends WM


I decided to use some nice, warm colors  and move away from using red.  With Christmas and Valentine’s Day, I feel like I have been using red on almost every project lately. 

I couldn’t quite get the colors correct in the photo.  The mat, “Hi” and ribbon are all a warm grey that coordinates with the DP.    They look slightly olive on my screen.    I didn’t have quite the right color ribbon, so I colored it with my Copic markers so that it coordinated better.

I hope this brightens your day a bit.  Thank you for stopping by!
