Just Us Girls Challenge #618 has “Friends” for the word challenge this time. As I was scrolling through the projects the design team posted, I remembered I had purchased the Flowering Cactus stamp set for the “You are a rare find my dear friend” sentiment. I am fortunate enough to have a few friends in mind for that stamp set. I dug into my retired stash and found the whole medley (rare find as I forgot I purchased the whole medley). The designer series paper and the stamp set with coordinating dies, have beautiful flowering cactus images. During one of our trips to Palm Springs, CA, I learned just how rare a flowering cactus is and just how stunningly beautiful the colorful flowers are against the desert backdrop. The Flowering Cactus Product Medley came with little felt flowers in Calypso Coral and Highland Heather (I had forgotten about those sweet little embellishments). The DSP comes as 6×6 inch pieces. With the 6×6 inch paper, I always end up with odd sized strips. So my objective was to use the odd shaped strips for these cards. The tiny scalloped rectangles for the sentiments are dies from the Stitched So Sweetly die set. I had totally forgot about those rectangle dies (another rare find), as I always use the other images in the die set.
