This is the card that I made for my Sister-in-Law's birthday. I got the idea for this card from Angie and you can see her beautiful creations here. She is just so darn talented!
I started with the circle and stamped the lilacs from the retired set Blossoms Abound in Pink Passion, Pixie Pink and Pretty in Pink on Whisper White cs. I also stamped the retired French Script background with Pixie Pink and Basic Brown and sponged the whole thing with Creamy Caramel. The lilac in the middle is stamped, embossed with Iridescent Ice EP and adhered with dimensionals. I also embossed the other lilacs. The dragonfly is from Organic Grace and stamped in Black Staz-on on Whisper White cs and colored in with SU! markers and also embossed. The card base is Kiwi Kiss. The organdy ribbon was distressed by zappin' it with the heat gun until it started to curl up. You have to be careful with that technique or you'll burn the ribbon. This I know from experience! I cut a small slit in the top crease fold of the card stock and slipped the ribbon through and then tied it around the card. The only thing I don't like about that is that the ribbon is visible from inside the card, but oh well! I hope she likes the card and the gift from the last post. I'm almost sure she will!
Today, I spent making a flower arrangement for my daughter's wedding. As soon as the final touches are done, I'll take some pics and share! I'm also making the bouquet which I'm terrified to make! Amber is slightly picky, but is having a hard time really making a decision on what she wants. She wants sea shells in it, because we are going with a casual elegant beach theme, but she also wants real flowers in it, so I'm trying to come up with something that she'll love. I'll also share that as soon as it's finalized. Last night I stamped the tags for the wedding favors. I bought a bunch of little glass bottles with corks and we will make a little note to slip inside each one to create a "message in a bottle". I've come up with a lot of little things for the wedding and reception, just have to get it all done! I'm getting nervous, but I know everything will come together.
Until next time, Hugs and Happy Craftin'!

Ok, so the pics didn't turn out great, but I'm posting this one anyway.
I love the new Animal Crackers set! All the little critters are adorable, but the giraffe is my favorite!
The card base is Certainly Celery with a piece of the FREE Sale-a-Bration dp called Delicate Dots layered on top. The image is stamped on Very Vanilla with Black Stazon and colored in with markers and then layered on a piece of Bashful Blue cs that was punched on one side with the scallop punch and then pierced each scallop. The ribbon is also from the FREE Sale-a-Bration ribbon bundle. Don't you just love FREE! The embellishment is the same dp cut out using the Buttons Sixxix with two of them layered and then I added a piece of the Martha Stewart colored baking twine that I bought months ago and then never used. Why do I do that? I guess that it's safe to say that I am a hoarder! lol.
So there is the first card that I made with all my new SU! goodies! Can't wait to show you the next one, as long as the new camera cooperates this time! Until then, Hugs and Happy Stampin'!
