Home Made Embellies!

Hay blog buddies! Look at me blogging two days in a row! So proud of myself. Now on to to the card.

I made this card for my good friend Gayle's birthday. I used retired Stampin' Up! products to make this card. They are my absolute FAVORITE in colors! I can't lie it was really hard to break these out of my stash. I have been hording these for so long. I even went onto EBay after I made this card to try and buy some more of the cardstock because I love it so much. I thought I would have plenty when I only order one combo pack of paper and all the stamp pads when they were the current in colors but I don't know what I was thinking.

I even made the fun embellies with my new Sizzix die cut Flower Layers. My friends bought me a Cuttlebug for my birthday a few weeks ago and I love it! Best gift ever girls...thank you! I made several different color layers with the die cut and then crumbled them up. Once I did that I flattened them out a bit then assembled them. The centers of the flowers are pearls that I got from Target's Dollar Spot. I love that place!

The stamped background image is from Outlines Rubber Stamp Co stamped in SU! River Rock. The border is from the CTMH Adorning Corners set stamped in SU! Purely Pomegranate. I was so glad that I finally busted this set out. I bought it so long ago, I don't know why it took my so long to use it. The sentiment is from SU! Short & Sweet stamped in SU! Blue Bayou. The base of the card is SU! River Rock and the flower layers are all SU! Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate & Soft Sky. The ribbon along the bottom is from American Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by and let me what ya think!

*Sorry for all the typos - I came back and fixed them.
