Topaz friendship

It's been a while since I took part in a Daring Cardmakers challenge and, having decided to do something this week, I'm at the last minute once again. The theme is Topaz, the birthstone for November.

I've used Kathy's new sketch for this month - it's on her Sketch File blog here:

The panel on the right hand side of the card is gloss card that has been dabbed with butterscotch and copper alcohol inks (it's been a while since I used these inks - enjoyed playing with them again). I then used an Anna Griffin repeating pattern stamp with DI spiced marmalade. I also used this to distress the edges of the friendship sentiment, which is a stamp I love, given to me by a crafting friend. I thought this sentiment was just right for this card as friendship is one of the attributes associated with topaz.

The papers are BG ambrosia an the gems are Prima. The yellow flower is one that I bought ages ago at Early Learning Centre (they don't do them any more, which is a pity).

I'm also linking this card for:

Freshly brewed: two or more patterned papers
