Sarah's card

Hellooooooooooooooo, I am a bit excited as I have some new stuff to show you today, you see one of my Passionettes, Sarah celebrated her Happy Birthday yesterday so I had to make her a card and I thought I might as well use my newest toys,hee hee.

As a demonstrator you get the chance to preorder new product a month in advance and I have received my preorder this week. First in the mini catalgoue and first on my list was the oh so gorgoeus Sof Summer, I love this branch and I have endless ideas on how to use this set. Sarah.s favourite colour combo is purples and greens and this is what I have been using for her card, Orchid Opulence, Ceirtainly Celery, Basic Black and I added a hint of So Saffron to brigthen the overall look. I have stamped the polka dot background stamp onto the orchid layer with basic black ink, now this set is a two step set wich means it has an outline as well as a solid image and I have coloured it here using my Marvelous Markers, then over stamped the outline in Basic black using the Stamp a ma jig to ensure correct placement.( markers used orchid opulence, close to cocoa, bashful blue, so saffron,ceirtanly celery and garden green) And LOOK at this !!!!!My new and absolutely fabulous oval punches, just how much are you going to love those huh? I know, I know A LOT!!

I have combined them here with the coordinating stamp set Oval All, I have stamped the sentiment (it said thank you) onto the orchid card then using the oval scallop I punched it out and added some white dots with the white Signo pen, I then stamped my *Birthday wishes* sentiment from the Sincere Salutations set and before sticking onto the orchid layer I run the Certainly celery marker over the edge. I love the effect and I know those punches will be soo popular, don't forget that you can preorder them through me for a chance to win some cool prizes( scroll down to the Ohhhh my.... post ). The buttons are new too there s some gorgeous ones in there, positively yummy. Oh and check out my ribbon treatment, I am trying out various ways, trouble is I cannot remember how I tied it LOL>

Sarah I hope you had a fabulous day and I hope you will like your card. Got to make a sympathy card tonight so I have to go, these cards always take me ages as I don't like making them.

I also have some veryyyyyyyyyyyy exciting news to share with you very , very soon and I know you will love it!!! Lots of hugs M xxx
