Friends Card - Freshly Made Sketches

My card for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week is made from the La Belle Vie papers. I love the colours in this paper pack and I wanted to bring out the Sweet Leaf green along with the pink and black. I also turned the sketch completely around. I know a lot of people have a hard time with this paper pack due to not having coloured inks (other than the basic colours) that match the papers but Smokey Plum is a terrific alternative. I used the pigment ink here just for a stronger shade of colour. I'll be really sad to see this paper pack retire - I feel like I have barely used it since Convention!

Paper: La Belle Vie Paper Pack (include cardstock available only with this paper pack), Black Cardstock, Sweet Leaf Cardstock
Stamps: Beautiful Friendship

The sweet leaf green is a nice opposite shade to this pack. I wouldn't have thought to combine it. I love how the green sparkles accent it. :) Beautiful, Alyson.
