2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown and some NEW stamps!!

DSCN7172



So, I got my sneak peek order of SU! goodies, and this card is what I came up with.  I am LOVING the Rich Razzleberry and I thought that this color combo combined with this FABULOUS sketch from 2S4Y would just make a stunning card, and I'm really pleased with the results.  You can see the sketch over at 2S4Y by clicking HERE.  I made this card for their First Annual Ultimate Card Showdown.  It is a great sketch with so many possibilities, and the creations of the other gals so far are simply gorgeous.

DSCN7174I had fun layering the little "medallion" from the sneak-peek set Circle Circus stamp set (it will be in the new Idea Book & Catalog - available July 1st), and using a Build-a-Brad for the very top-most layer.  It was a pretty quick card to put together (which is why I even got to play along today, since I only had about 30 min of "me" time to do it!!!) and I think you should all play along with 2S4Y this week!!!

For the "happy birthday" layer I used the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes (in the new Idea Book & Catalog ) and along with my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig, I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment all over.  Rather than use Orchid Opulence, I stamped off the Rich Razzleberry for some of the images.  This stamp set has TWENTY FOUR stamps for occasions, and includes pretty much every holiday I would ever want a stamp for, one for a birthday, thinking of you, thank you, sympathy, graduation, and on and on!!!  it is a great stamp set, and the sentiments all fit in a punch that you will probably start seeing around that is also in the new Idea Book & Catalog called the Modern Label punch.  Also, that textured Crushed Curry CS I used came in an 8-1/2 x 11 assorted In Colors package.  Can you say 8-1/2 x 11 TEXTURED CS?!?!?!?!  And that polka dot ribbon?!?!?!?!  Yippee!!!!

I hope you like it!!!  I really had fun making this card and really like this sketch.  Don't forget to check out 2S4Y!!!!
