Hi Stampers!
Bliss - that is what SALE-A-BRATION is!! But, all good things come to an end and SAB is no different.
THERE IS STILL TIME! Get your orders to me before 8pm Thursday and get a FREE stamp set for each $50 in merchandise ordered. A note about the adhesive sale: SAB awards are based on the FULL PRICE of the adhesives (even though you are paying a discounted rate) So, if you have that one more item on your wish list from SAB, stock up on adhesives now and cash in on SAB during these last 2 days!
Now - about the card!
This was one of my "club" cards last month. The inspiration for this card came from Ann Schach. The finished card measures 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" so it fits into our large square envelopes! I think you will be able to figure out how the card was done with the help of the items used listed below.  We used the sanding block to lightly sand the raised areas of the embossed cardstock to enhance the design.  The circular piece was done on a 1/2 sheet of Whisper White card stock and then centered on the 3-1/2" circle die to be cut the circle. The Bliss flourish was stamped with Versamard and embossed with white embossing powder. We used sponge daubers to apply the three shades of blue then spritzed with Early Espresso and the Spritzing tool. The butterflies were inked first with Versamark then Poppy Parade, stamped on Whisper White the embossed with clear embossing powder and cut out. (the little birdie too!) Hope you give this a whirl. HAVE FUN!
