Happy New Years Eve

Hi everyone,

I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas break. We certainly did although Christmas Day was rather hectic - but when is it not? Thankfully we can't do both sides of the family in one day any more but it does mean that the Christmas celebrations do go on for nearly a week. Not a bad thing for me and the girls but my poor DH finds it difficult.

Anyway I just wanted to pop by and show you a card that I made a little while ago for a round of Secret Sister I was in. The idea is that you send someone a couple of cards and a home made gift for 3 months and in the last month you reveal who you are. It is so lovely to get Happy Mail rather than the nasty ones with windows. Unfortunately the lady I sent my gifts to doesn't have a current blog or I would direct you to it.

On her questionnaire she stated that she liked Melon Mambo and Concord Crush - now I have to agree with her and I love those colours too. So here is the card using those colours.

I apologise that the image isn't straight!!! I used the stamp set Build a Blossom and yes despite there being a coordinating punch that I did use, the Melon Mambo petals were hand cut. I then popped them up on Dimensionals on top of the Pretty in Pink punched out petals. The piece of DSP behind the flower is from the Hostess only Cheerful Treat.

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Build a Blossom, Heard from the Heart.
Paper: Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Lucky Limeade, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Cheerful Treat DSP
Ink: Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade
Other: Perfect Polka Dots EF, Blossom Petals Builder Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Dimensionals.

I hope that you all have a lovely New Years Eve and I will be back in the New Year with more ideas for you to look at.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next year.

Secret Sisters-how fun!
After all of the Christmas projects, this sure is a sign of spring! Your popped up flower has so much dimension, I found myself wanting to touch the petals!! Very pretty color combo and your card is beautiful! Happy New Year to you and your family!
