Sale-A-Bration Celebration

I so wish I could take credit for todays creation. However, this is another of the incredibly talented Vicky's cards from over on her Crafting Clare blog. The moment I saw this I fell in love with the design. Not only does it use my favourite colour of the moment, Pool Party, but it uses a favoured technique too (a technique I hadnt tried until I noticed Vicky use it- creating a post-it mask and sponging the uncovered area).

This card is simply stunning and uses a combination of techniques from clear embossing, sponging, colouring and finally using the mat pack and paper pricking tool to create the faux stitched effect. Here is a close up of the clear embossed sentiment and sponged panel.

This uses the 'Celebrate' from Outlined Occasions which i have then embellished with minature flowers punched from the Itty Bitty Punch Shapes pack (Pool Party and Pacific Point) and tiny Basic Pearls. So simple but so effective.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you'll pop back tomorrow for the final card of the week ;0)

Happy Crafting in the meantime ;0)
