Always be my friend

Hello!!!!  I'm using another new stamp from Quietfire Design, it's from the Always be my Friend set of 3 stamps.  Oh, I keep forgetting to mention that QF has the new stamps on sale for 20% off.

The background of this card was left over after playing with alcohol inks for THIS post.  I stamped the calligraphy image with Archival Ink jet black and added a piece of tissue tape across the panel.  The flowers (Prima sunrise sunset collection) started out grey. I used a variety of sprays on them finishing up with Perfect Pearls mist in gold -love that shimmer.  I added a drop of Glossy Accents behind each flower to glue them on.  After it was dry I poked 2 holes to bring the ribbon through and tie it.  I then decided to add some Treasure Gold white fire to the flower edges (yes, it would have been easier before they were attached but I didn't think of it then, lol) and the edge of the background. Don't you love how that metallic from the Treasure Gold really makes them pop!!!!
