For you, sweet sugarplum!

Hello, hello!  I got a few new fun goodies in the mail this morning, so I made a card to share with you!  I have to admit that I struggled with this card.  I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like and it wound up looking nothing like that! LOL  It's the color!  I used Sweet Sugar plum and although it is an absolutely gorgeous color I had a really hard time working with it!  Are you like that with any particular color?  I tried several things, tweaked several things and tossed several things into the circular file never to be seen again!  After a while I finally managed to pull something together that  was pleased with!   Here is the little guy:

This card has lots of shimmer to it!  The ribbon is beautiful.  It is a silver, glittery ribbon that gives off sparkle when you rotate the card!  The sequins are silver and sweet sugar plum and I colored in the flower with Wink of Stella!

The fun thing about this card is that I created the background!!  I used the new stencil masks from the holiday cattie to make those fun polka dots!!  I sponged them onto a piece of  Very Vanilla using Sweet sugar plum and a stamping sponge! Fun stuff, I tell ya!!  

I also used the new circle layering framelits.  So many awesome possibilities for those!!  I cannot wait to play more with them!

Here is the list of supplies I used today:

Click away if you see anything you simply must have and it will take you straight to my online store where you can order it!

Ok, I have an enormous TO DO list today so I am off!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
