sassy sprite

I'm not sure which dollar bin she came from (really!) but dressed up in rich razzleberry and matted in crushed curry she looks downright elegant, dontcha think?! This is a large (5x7) card for a co-worker. Not my favorite size but necessary for all the staff well wishes. The large size of this one actually gave me the right sized canvas to create this super-sized flower. It's made from the new ornament punch in the Holiday mini and we're just one day away from being able to order it (September 1st)! The ornament punch is so cool--you're going to love it. It coordinates with the fabulous Delightful Decorations ornament stamp set that will make christmas card-making a piece of cake! Anyway, I punched out 6 "ornament" shapes from the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and arranged them to resemble a flower. The credit for this great idea goes to Jeni Allen--check out her Stampin' Spot blog. I used my oval nestabilities to create the sassy sprite in the center of the flower. The flower landed on a rich razzleberry background that was run through my cuttlebug with the birds & swirls embossing folder, matted on crushed curry and clipped with the ticket corner punch. The banner for my sentiment is more Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and the stamp from Sincere Salutations looks great inked up in rich razzleberry and stamped directly on the designer paper. Three gold rhinestone brads (circles, fire) provide just the right amount of sparkle for this sassy sprite. Hope you like it!

Very nice card... as usual.
I'm currently waiting for my box with the Razzleberry Lemonade papers. Can't wait.
