Hi everyone!  I have some exciting news to share with you all!  I'm now a SU demonstrator!  I've been thinking about signing up for some time now and I'm so excited.  I'm in the process of updating my blog and I will post a link to my Stampin Up Demonstrator website within a few days.

Today I decided to take a break from my valentine cards because I needed a thank you card for a friend who sent me a birthday gift last week.

I used my Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and I stamped the flower three times.  I colored them and then cut them out and then placed them onto my black card stock.  Once my card was assembled I decided to add glitter into the center of the flowers.

Both of my black card stock layers have the edges punched using my SU scallop trim border punch.  My white card stock with the black polka dots on it is not pattern paper.  I made that pattern paper myself by using the holes in my SU mat pack as a guide and my black marker to make the dots.  It turned out pretty neat- another great use for my mat pack!

Well, that's about if for today!  I hope you all have a great weekend.  I'll be back again on Monday because this weekend I will be busy planning a birthday party for my little girl who will be 2 already.  How fast they grow up!

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral
Card Stock: White, Barely Banana, Black
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip
Supplies: Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch, SU Markers, 2 Way Glue Pen, DD Glitter, SU Scissors, SU Mat Pack Pin It
