Wonderful Things

I just joined a new blogging group on SCS called Stamp Addicts.  They really seem to be a fun group and very active and busy not only with crafting, but in their IRL lives.  One of the challenges for the month is to CASE a card from one of the other Addicts.  This time is was Shelly and this is the card of hers that I chose.  I love the vibrant colors.  I actually chose this one because of the layout.  I had this huge sparkly flower that I've been dying to use on something and it was perfect for this.
Materials used:
Base - Gina K Designs 120# with a layer of Stampin Up Silver Metallic. 
Ribbon - Stampin Up Basic Gray Taffeta; bow - Martha Stewart Glitter bow.
Image - Chrysanthemum from Jolee By You.
Sentiment - have to check this.  I thought I knew where I got this, but I was wrong.  I stamped it with Versamark and then used SU Sterling Silver EP and used my heat gun to emboss it.  Then punched it out with a 1 1/2" punch and distressed the edges with a Metallic Silver ink pad.
Finished it off with a silver stick pin that I got at Mark's Finest Papers.

No Copics were used in the creation of this card.  ;)

I'm also submitting this for the Bugaboo Challenge this month - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.  I do appreciate your time.  Have a great week!
