Let's Talk

This week's blogger challenge theme is girlfriends. I used the current Mojo Monday sketch along with some supplies from i {heart} papers to put this cheery card together.

Let's Talk card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Hero Arts
The old-fashioned phone is from an older Hero Arts stamp set, Just Saying Hi.  I stamped the phone in gray pigment ink on white cardstock, then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it a shiny look.  The "cord" was made from a piece of twine, twisted around the end of my paper piecing tool to make it curly.  I used dimensional dots to adhere the phone to an orange cardstock strip stamped with the "let's talk" sentiment.

The sentiment panel was adhered to a pale gray cardstock panel over a strip of solid orange cardstock and a floral paper panel.  The orange panels were edged with narrow strips of pale lemon yellow cardstock.  I added a little sparkle with a trio of yellow sequins.
