PPA137 - My Friend with Comfort Cafe

It's time for another wonderful challenge over at the Pals Paper Arts . This week they have a sketch design by the talented Margaret Moody which is darling and so there I went to figure out what to create with it. 

If you would like to join the fun, click here and go directly to this fun challenge.
Here is mine below:
Back to playing with some new stuff again and new colors including Midnight Muse as my base cardstock for this 5x5 card. For the center, Summer Starfruit was used as the focal point and Raspberry Ripple for the 1 3/8" circle (upper right). For the sentiment, the set called: Loving Thoughts was a perfect fit inside the circle. 

Don't you love this new ribbon and all the stitches? Here is a close up picture of the 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (Raspberry Ripple) along with the new In color Dahlias (Summer Starfruit)

I couldn't resist but to add a couple of little butterflies in Midnight Muse using the embosslit die called Beautiful Wings on top of the circle......while I wait to get the new butterfly punch.

This DSP, Comfort Cafe is just so versatile. It's getting to be one of my favorites along with the stamp set: My Friend. Once again, I used sponge daubers to create this look. (Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, and Summer Starfruit). Stampin Dimensionals were used under both circles to pop it up just a little. Hope you Enjoy!!
