A Real Friend - Zva Creative February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Zva Creative February Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from Robin's Blog, you are in the right place, if not you might want to start at Zva Creative Blog, so that you don't miss any of the designers beautiful creations!  Hidden along the hop are FIVE Zva Creative prize packages,  so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.  Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over.


Inspired by the lovely soft colors in the Making Memories Paper, I used this weeks Card Patterns Sketch as a starting point for my card.  The quote and dragonfly are sneak peek from the Faithful Friend set being released at Our Daily Bread Designs on March 1st.  The sentiment is stamped in Jenni Bowlin Brown Sugar ink on Vanilla, then cut with Spellbinders Oval Dies.  The dragonfly was stamped in Brown Sugar on a Sage piece of card stock, cut out and adhered to the Oval with a dimensional.  To further embellish I added a Seam Binding Bow, Zva Creative Pink Transition Mini Roses  [FLBK-03CB-113] and pieces of a White Long Pearl Long Flourish III [PEB-03CA-101].
