FINALLY!!!!  What a shocker of a week - can you believe it's Thursday and I'm just now getting the Featured Stamper Challenge done???  Of course I had to play this week because it is my dear friend PAM who is being honoured!!!  I chose her Let Heaven & Nature Sing card to case.  As much as I LOVE the stamp she used, I decided to change the stamp to a friendship theme, slightly modified the layout, kept the red/green colour palette and moved the pearls!!!

I started with a base of white and layered with Riding Hood Red (embossed with Swiss Dots).  The middle panel is more white layered with Raspberry Tart DSP and then added some Vintage corners.  Across the middle is some 1" white satin ribbon and popped up in the middle is the main panel using the JustRite Friendship Set.  I stamped it in black and then coloured the wreath in red and green markers and blender pen.  I used Large Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities to cut the image out.  (JustRite now has this AWESOME Punch and Die Compatibility Chart which makes it a breeze to find the right thing to use - you can find and download it HERE!!!!)  To finish I added 13 tiny white pearls to each of the flowers in the wreath and red pearls to the corners - because I know Pam would be horrified if I didn't have pearls somewhere on this card!!!  :)  CONGRATULATIONS Pam --- this card is heading to you!!!!  :)
