...For You

It's been a while since I've posted a Stampin' Up card, so I thought I would show you this beauty! This happens to be one of my favorite cards that I have ever made! I love the colors, the layout, and the cheerful feeling I get when I look at it...I hope you all feel the same way! I started with a Basic Gray Cardstock base, then matted the additional layers with a combination of Basic Gray Cardstock and Regal Rose Cardstock. The large Whisper White Cardstock panel was pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. I added a piece of floral patterned paper from the Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper pack, and a gray striped piece of patterned paper from the Patterns Pack II Designer Series Paper 6X6 Pad. The butterflies from the set "Great Friend" were stamped and embossed onto a scrap piece of white cardstock, then cut out. The circle focal panel was created using the Classic Circle Nestabilities from Spellbinders. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink and embossed as well after I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for proper placement. The only embellishments used were a piece of 5/8" Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, Black Hemp, and Silver Brads.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all tomorrow with another SU goody! I have a club this week to prepare for, so I hope to share those with you at the end of the week. I have also added a poll to my sidebar on the right...please take a moment to leave me your feedback. This will let me know what my readers would like to see most..thanks! Until later...
