i heart CAMEO CORAL!

Tuesday, March 31 is the last day to earn FREE Stampin' Up! products with your Stampin' Up! purchases through Sale-A-Bration (earn free stamp sets, designer paper, and/or ribbon with each $50 purchase ... no limit!). I'll be placing one more order before 3/31. Contact me to have your order included! nrileycm@cox.net

Wednesday, April 1 starts the new Occasions Mini Catalog. This card uses a couple of new products from it ... Walk In The Park Designer Paper featuring the colors of Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze, and So Saffron AND Baja Breeze Corduroy Buttons/Brads (they also come in Basic Gray!). I was thrilled to see a designer paper pack featuring the wonderful and almost forgotten color of Cameo Coral! I've used the wonderful Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #11 for my card. The butterfly image from Simple Friendship was stamped twice in Cameo Coral. One butterfly image was cut out and glued down the center with Tombo Mono Adhesive, allowing the wings to slightly bend up for depth.

You are amazing Nancy! Everything you've done to this is wonderfully chosen. Those corduroy brads -yummy! I've got to get on the ball and use those babies (I have three colors- you'd think I could spare a few on a card now and then!) Love how the ribbon is tied right through that main panel! Gorgeous!
