Where do I start?  So so many things I love about this card!!!  Silver Glimmer Paper makes me swoon!  So beautiful, glittery, simple, mess-less (am I making up words again?)…and you can get it free with a party or $150 order during Sale-A-Bration!  Speaking of Stampin’ Up!’s best sale of the year, Sale-A-Bration 2013, do you see that fabulous stamp?  It’s from my favorite SAB stamp set, Vintage Verses!!!  (The “Thanks” in the set is to die for as well!)  I also love the new Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that is in the Spring Catalog.  Here I’ve embossed it onto Pool Party Core’dinations Card Stock and then sanded with the Stampin’ Sanding Block to reveal the lighter color on the inside of the paper.  Oh, did I mention the ribbon?  Or that doily?  Read on…

The ribbon is ANOTHER free option during SAB with any $50 order!  The Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack is so so awesome, it contains 3 spools of gorgeous 1/4″ ribbon in 3 colors:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Tangerine Tango, as well as buttons in Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, and Tangerine Tango!  Seriously, ALL of that!!!  Wowza!  I am seriously hoping this pretty ribbon is offered in more fabulous colors in our next Annual Catalog!

The Paper Doily is from the Spring Catalog!  These things are a steal at $2.95 for 24 of them!  That’s right, I said 24!!!  For this card, I folded it in half (not perfectly) so it would add more dimension to the card, but if you’re going for more bang for your buck, simply cut these pretties in half and have twice as many!  YAY!

I used the Bitty Butterfly punch (again Spring Catalog) and punched a few out of the Silver Glimmer Paper to add some sparkle and shine to the card.  Did I tell you yet how excited I am about this punch?  I probably did – but I’ll tell you again!  It coordinates with one of my all time favorite stamp sets, Papillon Potpourri!!!  Are you kidding me?  A punch for the large butterfly and the small one now too?!?  Oh, double yay!  This punch also matches the FREE SAB stamp set Bloomin’ Marvelous!!!  (It’s pretty too!  I bet you’re surprised that I think that!)  I finished off the card with a couple of adhesive rhinestones to accent the beauty of the stamp – and let’s not kid ourselves, add a little more sparkle and shine, because who doesn’t love that? 🙂

Now, let’s talk about the color combo!  Put any lighter color with Basic Gray and BAM, you’ve got yourself a beautiful monochromatic card!  Other favorites besides Pool Party – Summer Starfruit or Pretty in Pink or Pink Pirouette or Certainly Celery…and oh, Calypso Coral would look pretty!  See it works with brighter colors too, just a little less contrast!  Give it a try!

This fabulous card was a complete CASE of my friend Desiree Spenst, who I believe CASEd it from someone else.  That’s how we roll in the stamp world!  Share and stamp, stamp and share!
