Friends are Like Stars...

I made this card using sketch #125 at Clean & Simple. I used the colors from Color Throwdown, which are early espresso, kiwi kiss, marina mist & old olive. I used the "Friendship Challenge" theme at The Paper Variety, they had a quote to inspire you, which I used on the inside of my card.
The card is 4"x6" and made of a shimmery dark brown cardstock. I cut some white cardstock at 5 1/2"x2 1/2." I then cut some light green cardstock at 2 1/4"x1 1/2," some dark green cardstock at 2 1/4"x1 3/4" and the blue cardstock at 2 1/4"x2." I adhered them to the white rectangle and then embossed the whole piece with the Stars embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I stamped the sentiment on the front using key lime ink and the sentiment on the inside using pearlescent sky blue ink, both from Tsukineko.
