Hey Friend

Good Morning!

I have a friend card for you today inspired Jay Gee's newest photo challenge. I was inspired by so many elements in the photograph, but I stuck to the neutral colors and the keys stuck out most, so that is where I focused my creativity.

I started with a Kraft Card base and stamped WPlus9 Mehndi Medallions in white Kraft Ink and gave it some shine with white embossing powder.

I created a frame using some spellbinders dies and added a key and sentiment from Practicing Creativity Key to My Heart.
Here is the beautiful inspiration photograph over at Jay Gee's Nook.
I am going to join in also at Stamp and Create: Anything Goes
Sorry to keep this short, but I have to get out the door to sit in some major traffic! Ugg! What a fun way to start my week!
Till next time!
~Tammy~

{Recipe}
Stamps:  Wplus9: Mehndi Medallions, Practicing Creativity: Key to my Heart
Paper: CS: Stampin' UP!

Tammy, I think you really nailed this inspiration challenge! LOVE those Mehndi Medallions. They are on my wish list. I like both versions: Papertrey's and Wplus9's.
