It's all Good

You may have thought you'd be seeing another pastels card tonight, but you get a reprieve. I've been getting the stamp room ready for my open stamp night tomorrow night and didn't have much time to design . (By the way, there's still room if you want to come. Contact me for details.)

So instead I'm showing you a card that I sent out to the ladies in my downline who had significant business accomplishments last month. Hopefully they all received their cards and I'm not spoiling the surprise by posting this here.

The sentiment in the center of the card is from a new set called It's All Good. I stamped it in bashful blue because I wanted it to be reminiscent of this year's convention logo and added night of navy and so saffron mats. For the main image I chose stars and I found two stamps featuring the same pattern in different sizes, which I thought went great together. The smaller star, stamped in bashful blue, is from a set called Starstruck. I used another star from this set to stamp a background in versamark on the bashful blue card base, but it's hard to see in this photo. The larger star, stamped in so saffron is from the Level 2 Hostess set Perfect Presentation. This is just an awesome hostess set and perfect for this time of year since it features all Christmas and Winter themed stamps. And remember, there are only two and a half months to go before this and all the other hostess sets retire!

After I centered the sentiment on the stamped main image, I added a mat of so saffron and a larger mat of night of navy which I paper pierced all around (to mimic the dots around the star images) and then adhered to the bashful blue card base. I do hope the ladies in my downline liked this card and that they look forward to receiving more stamped cards each month they have significant accomplishments in their busienss. Congrats Ladies! Woo hoo!
