Hello You PCCS#96

Good!!  Its time for another day.  Time for another project to share.  Today I am sharing my card I created yesterday for the fun sketch challenge over at Paper Craft Crew.  Its also another day, that I get to mark off the calendar for the countdown to when my new stamping toys arrive at my door step by that lovely big brown truck!  Stampin' Up! demos all over are either opening their boxes already (lucky ducks) or they are waiting like to me for the first of next week.  My order from the new full catalog should arrive Monday!!!  Its gonna be Christmas and Birthday all over again!!  Ok, Ok, back to my card.

Now that the old is out of the way, I can concentrate on playing with the new.  I didn't preorder a lot of different stamp sets, but did get my hands on all the new in color goodies.  I used Lost Lagoon for my card base, layered with sahara sand and a piece of DSP from the Moonlight paper stack pad.  I just love the polka dots.  This pack really uses a lot of the new in colors.  The other new item I used is the hello honey stitched satin ribbon.  I tied it with a piece of gold bakers twine and used a glue dot to attach to my tag.  I chose the Regarding Dahlias stamp set.  Its one I really love, but don't use a lot.  I think one of the reasons is, is that I find if I use a certain stamp set to much, I get tired of it and this is one that I don't want that to happen with.  I stamped it in Lost Lagoon first on the tag and then again two more times to cut out and layer with foam dots.  I shaded each layer to help it stand out.  The cuteness comes in when I added the buttons.  Even though these do not come in the in colors, the crushed curry and island indigo buttons from the regals family, go pretty well together with this card. 

On the inside, I kept it pretty simple with just a stamped flower with a layer of sahara sand cardstock.

Here is just a close up of the details in my flower.

Thanks for dropping by.  Leave some "love", and go get those fingers inked up!
