Now for my creation...I had this whole masculine card in mind when I started this creation and well, not sure what happened. ha!  I stamped out my sentiment single called Sweetness of Friendship onto classic white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink. Before I cut the sentiment rectangle I stamped one of the trees from Forest of Trees using garden green ink.
I layered the sentiment panel onto some Pistachio Color Made Easy cardstock. Along with some matching ribbon from the Color Made Easy Pistachio called moss green. I have to tell you these collections make is super easy to pick everything from ink, ribbon to cardstock. I like that!
My frame shapes are using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles that I can't seem to get enough of. I really do love this shape and makes awesome framed shapes. Added some white crochet lace behind my ribbon bow that has a Crystal Pastel center for some bling. Now you see why this can't be a masculine creation. ha!
