This and That Blossom Birthday!

Stampin' Up! has released a new line of products that will debut in the 2013-2014 STAMPIN' UP! Catalog, and we have the chance to get them NOW!!   From now until April 30 only, we can save 15% on the price by purchasing the bundle of products!!  Mine just arrived yesterday evening and I couldn't wait to make something;  I love the new This and That Epic Day Designer Paper so pulled it out to make a card for Connie and Mary's Sketch Challenge!
The flower and lower part of the card are two prints from the new This and That Epic Day Designer Paper, and there are TEN other great prints in there too!  The colors in these two prints are Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Pool Party, Basic Gray and Crumb Cake.  I used Crumb Cake cardstock for the 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base and topped that with a layer of Pool Party.  The top portion of the Pool Party was embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.

 A 2-1/4" x 4" strip of the designer paper covers the bottom of the Pool Party layer and is topped with a swath of the Natural Trim Ribbon (#129287).  The birthday greeting from the FROM MY HEART set was stamped with Basic Gray ink onto a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock and tucked under the flower.

(Okay, I don't know what is going on that I can't get my photos in landscape mode recently, but thank you for bearing with me here!)  This closeup shows the designer paper flower which was punched with the fabulous Blossom Punch (#125603).  Notice the center?  It was stamped with the filagree stamp from the new A ROUND ARRAY stamp sets, which is also a Sneak Peek from the upcoming new Catalog!  (See more about it HERE)  The Large Rhinestone (#129324) in the flower center was lightly colored with a Sharpie marker for bling.  One more thing, a quick burst of hairspray and a light sprinkling of Dazzling Delights Glitter followed by another light spray to keep it in place gives more fun sparkle to this card!

Beautiful card, Margaret! I love your tip on spraying with hair spray, adding Dazzling Diamonds, and spraying again. And I hadn't thought about using the This and That papers for cards. I think I will have to design one using the Washi Tape in place of a ribbon. I'm not that fond of using tape to slap photos, etc. into a scrapbook. I guess it goes against my hidden perfectionism.
