Inlaid Friendship

I've had so much fun playing around with ideas inspired by the "Inlaid Dies" Challenge at Addicted to CAS! I actually had some Memory Box die-cuts and the negative pieces in my stash, And they worked perfectly for this. I couldn't make any mistakes, though, since I couldn't cut more! The flowery frame is cut from the same purple paper I used for the card base, but heat-embossed with Orchid Mist powder. After piecing the frame & front panel, I die cut the "friend" & inlaid the sentiment with a piece heat-embossed in the same lovely powder. I stamped the "Hello" directly onto the piece and used the same powder. I'm happy with the fairly CAS result!
