A Special Treat

My little treat for you today is a card I made using the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #252.  We definitely need something to brighten up our day.  After that wonderful weather we had, it is now cooler and rainy.  The rain was very welcome since there wasn't much snow this winter and everything is so dry.  Now on to how I created this card.

Pool Party card stock was used for the card base.  A piece of 
Sweet Shop designer paper was matted with Calypso Coral card stock and added to a piece of Island Indigo card stockLucky Limeade ribbon was added.  I then wrapped Island Indigo Baker's Twine four times around this layer over the ribbon.  I then attached it to the card front.  The image from the Tagtastic stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark and Calypso Coral ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  It was punched out with the Large Tag punch.  Two stickers from the Sweet Shop stickers were added.  I punched out a piece of Calypso Coral card stock with the same punch, cut the top and bottom off and attached it behind the image.  This layer was popped up with dimensionals.  The Island Indigo, Pool Party and Calypso Coral brads were attached to circles of Lucky Limeade card stock with dimensionals after I cut off the prongs (not sure what those thingees on the back of brads are called).  They were attached to the card using glue dots.  The last thing I added to the card with a glue dot was a four loop bow made with Island Indigo Baker's Twine.  I think this will probably be used as a birthday card.  Have a great Tuesday.  Try to get in some fun, creative time.
