Elementary Elegance birthday card Sale-A-Bration 2012 by Stampin Up and me

Did you see how I added a little strip of card stock that I punched out with my Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch? It is such an elegant little punch that can work it's elegant miracle tricks on any card or scrapbook pages. (#119275 - $ 20.95)

I used the Curly Label Punch to punch out the centre of this image. (#119851 - $22.95, page 209 in the Idea Book and Catalogue 2011 - 2012) I love it when stamps and punches go so well together.

Here I used the letter E from the Broadsheet Alhabet Stampin Up stamp set

(#120585 - $36.95 for 26 different stamps. ) It fits so perfectly in the centre of this main image of the Elementary Elegance Stampin Up stamp set.

Here you see part of the Elementary Elegance Stamp set by Stampin Up. #125122.

I already love it to pieces.

Hi dear Stampers.

I know, it is my second post of the day. But I was so pumped about my card that I just had to show it to you. I inked up for the first time my Elementary Elegance Sale-A-Bration stamp set from Stampin Up and it just wowed me while I was playing with it. I have so many different idea's spinning around my head and this was one of them. I hope you love it as much as I do.

And it is so easy to receive it. I am not much of a sales person.. So I hope I am not rubbing you the wrong way with all this Sale-A-Bration talk.. But, if you place an order through my Online Stampin Up store, all you have to do is spend $60 and Stampin Up will offer this one for free to you. Now how about that! I love this company. They really spoil us.

When I hopped over to 'Our Creative Corner' this morning, I saw such an inspiring and gorgeous photo that they had posted on their challenge website. It had lots of warm and inviting colours and it had a beautiful elegance to it. Right away I dove into my card stock drawer and found just the right colours that I wanted to use. I hope that you can see the connection between their inspiration photo and my card.

I created my card for a dear friend who had her birthday yesterday and who is celebrating it this upcoming Friday.. Now how about that for being organised and ready to party! (I know.. I am getting there :)
Well.. I am keeping it short today.
