A Sprinkle of Love

Pin It Now! Here's a versative sneek-peek set coming out in January's Sale-A-Bration.  It's bold and graphic, and so easy to love!

Now, do you ever set out to do a particular thing to a card, and mess it up?  But it turns out cute and you surprise yourself at the creative talents you didn't even KNOW you had?!!  Yah, that's what I did with the scalloped border at the bottom.  I thought I had it set so the scallops would line up perfectly, but I had it wrong. But it was exactly a half scallop off, so it looks right :D

I used the striped embossing folder for just the middle black square for added texture.
Carried the scalloping through top to bottom.
The stamp set is new for Sale-A-Bration, called Sprinkled Expressions.  So cute and easy to use, requires no coloring or fussiness.
The brad and organdy ribbon, and the DSP are also Sale-A-Bration, Everyday Elegance. 
The ribbon is easy to layer and super shiny, it really adds a nice punch.

I took on this week's Stampin' Up Only Challenge #35, Feeling Punchy.  Since I'm away from home this week, I only took a handful of punches, literally FIVE!  But I grabbed one and went to town anyway, and who would know?!

CARDSTOCK:  Basic Black
DSP: Everyday Elegance, First Edition
STAMPS: Sprinkled Expressions
ACCESSORIES:  Organdy ribbon, Designer Brads, Scallop border punch, striped embossing folder
