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.
I 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!!!!
