I used the same (retired) paper but made it with Basic Gray cardstock instead. I love this stamp set and just wish it wasn't double mounted! Stampin' Up! has received so many complaints about double mounted sets that they have agreed not to make any more. HOWEVER, the ones they have made already (i.e. Thoughts and Prayers), will still be double mounted.
To make the card I used this sketch and have to admit it was a difficult one. The large circle was easy but the 2 small rectangles - well what do you do with two of them?
So I added some ribbon and a bow at the top along with a jumbo grommets. For the bottom rectangle I decided to cut up the saying "friend to friend". The bling is small grommets with a clear rhinestone brad in the center. And finally I paper pierced around the circle and rectangle as well as the photo corner. Alot of detail on this card.
The stamped image was tricky - I stamped the tree in Basic Gray. I then took a dampened q-tip and wiped the ink off some of the leaves. I then took my Cameo Coral marker and colored those in. Finally I stamped the tree in Baja Breeze and cut out some of the leaves which were then layered on my final image. Told you it was a lot of detail! Ha!
Here is the inside of the card.
