Friendship Cards

Good Morning!
Yesterday was super busy at the school....I didn't realize gluing white paper to cardboard was hard work....lol...today we are cutting shapes out of that stuff...fun eh?!
Last evening Jessie aka Knightrone asked if a couple of the DD girls could help make a sample for the Colour Challenge as she is covering for Emily while she is at CHA.
I sort of freaked out again when I heard Garden Green...turned out I had a harder time with the Pacific Point.
CC203 is Garden Green, Baja Breeze and Pacific Point
I pulled out Season of Friendship again ;)
For the card below I combined the Mojo71 sketch and the Try a New Technique Challenge....Paper Pleats.

I used Chat's Tutorial HERE for the flower.
Thanks for stopping by!

Cutting cardboard, huh?...and you just said the other day that you don't get along with scissors...Yikes!

I love that big flower on the second card! Gorgeous! Great job with the color challenge too. I like how the scallop layer is over top of the main panel.
