5x7 Altered discontinued Formica Sample

It takes a long time to grow an old friend.
This little stamp is from our previous catalog but I can't seem to let it go.
It is stamped using Classic Basic Black on water color paper after color washing the area with bashful blue.
The image was water colored using reinkers, layered on a scrap of Bravo Burgundy which was not as wide as the water color paper. that was layered with dimensionals over So Saffron, then layered again over Mellow Moss, again using dimensionals. I punched the side with the spiral punch, wrapped the under side with satin ribbon, put an altered pin in the knot of the bow, and added a new little clip with gold cord wrapped around it.
The Sentiment "Friends" was stamped and embossed in silver then I used a white gel pen to fill in the flowers and the word 'Friends'.
