Hi everyone!  Today, I'm posting a card I made for my class this past Saturday.  My class was a Sale-a-bration class using stamp sets you can earn during Stampin' Up! annual Sale-a-bration sale.

The Sale-a-bration set I used to make this card is called Sweet Summer.  This is my very favorite SAB set this year.  I also used the Punch Bunch SAB stamp set for my sentiment.

My white layer was cut using the Top Note die and the Big Shot.  This is the first time I used my Top Note die and I can already tell how versatile this die is.  Next, I stamped the flowers, the stems, and the bee all towards the right side of the die cut.  I did this because once I placed this layer onto my card I cut off a portion of the left side.

Once my flower images and the bee were stamped, I colored them in using my SU markers and then all I needed to do was to start assembling my card, so quick and easy!

The decorative paper I used on my card is also a Sale-a-bration option this year.  It's from the Designer Series Paper & Quick Accents Pack. 

Thanks for stoping by, I'd love to have you follow my blog and see the cards/projects I post weekly.  Make it a great rest of the day!  The weather is beautiful here and I'm off to take my new puppy outside and enjoy the sunshine.
