Patterned Occasions

Happy New Year, crafting friends... My first post in 2013 after a LONG time. I have been channeling a lot of my energy into getting the house organized, the craft room organized (ahem!) and it has been SLOW going. 

However, today I got to sit down and craft with the new goodies that came as a sneak peek to the upcoming Sale-a-Bration. This is a new stamp set that will be part of the SAB (starting on January 22, 2013) called "Patterned Occasions". Of course, being in India, I pay a lot of attention to elephants! How can you not, when they are occasionally walking the streets of Delhi. So, this is the first image that I picked out of the stamp set.

My sketch comes from this FMS sketch.
Here is my take:

My color combo comes straight from the patterned paper I use from this Designer Series Paper set called International Bazaar: Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.

I opted to use the ric rac edge from the Edgelits Finishing Touches, then added the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder on a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and finished off with a piece of Daffodil Delight ribbon.

I am using a piece of bling on one of the Pool Party flowers from the new Jewels Basic Rhinestone Large (it is in the current Spring Catalog). 

And then, with the left over pieces from the previous project, I am making another similar card below:

Thank you for stopping by. 

Happy stamping to you all,

What a fun card Liza! Love the colour! Who doesn't love an elephant though I must admit I haven't seen one walking down the street! Love the added bling! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
