The road to a friend's house is never long

Isn't that a darling sentiment? I've used it in the card in this post as it is one of the elements of a page in the "Peachy Keen" paper pad from Kaisercraft.

I made it for Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge with Labels:

And here's the card I made:

The road to a friend's house is never long
(click on the image to see it closer up)

I used the printable "Peachy Keen" PDF available at Kaisercraft.net for the main flower, and then combined elements from several pages of the pad to make up the rest of the card. The label is from one of the diecut shapes at the back of the pad, but because it had blue in the center it wasn't going to work with this colour scheme so I used my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter to cover it up.

As I used a colour toner printer to print the flower it needed a bit of TLC once I'd finished cutting it out. I find this is the case when cutting out any laser/toner printed elements so I used a dark brown marvy marker to go over the bits that were showing white as well as the edges and you can't tell the difference even in real life.

Size of card: A5 folded in half
