Good afternoon friends! I've had a fun day getting myself ready for another class tonight. As I was finishing up preperations I had to sit and finish this card. I've had the "bones" of this card on my desk for a couple of weeks now...and am very happy with how it finally turned out! I can't tell you how much I love the Crushed Curry color...I adore it! I used it on this card along with the Night and Day Specialty dsp from the Holiday Mini catalog(avaliable September 1!). I love this dsp too..the designs are fabulous!
The card began with a Crushed Curry card. I layerd a piece of Basic Black card stock followed by a piece of the Night and Day dsp. The Lattice BigZ die came to work, and took a piece of Crushed Curry on a trip through the Big Shot. The Curry lattice was then attached to another piece of dsp, and the snipped with paper snips to give just the perfect outline. I attached the lattice to the card and then went to work on my flower.

I used my Flower Layers BigZ die to create these great flowers! I think I like this particular flower best when made from dsp, instead of cardstock, just a random FYI!:) I used a couple of different patterns of paper and took then through the Big Shot to get a variety of flowers to choose from to build my perfect bloom! I scrunched them up in my hand and made the dsp all wrinkled and distressed. I layered them together and then added a misc. button that matches the Curry color! **Go Stampin' Up! for producing such great new In Colors, they are everywhere!**

For the final touch on this card, I had to find the perfect sentiment. I used the Celebrate You stamp from the A Little Birthday Cheer stamp set. I stamped the sentiment using Black ink and whisper white cardstock. I trimed it to make a little banner like feel...and there you have it! I attached it to my card with a glue dot and dimensionals.

Hope you have a great evening! Oh, my son's teacher loved the dozen sharpened pencils we took to her yesterday...yea! Thanks for stopping by!
