Breaking in the New Toys-Can You Case It #73

Hey there! It was a scorcher here today in the mid 90's! Took the kids to the pool along with the rest of our little town! Really crowded! My mini garden is not liking the heat either! Me? Well I am a tank top and flip-flop girl come summer time! For the first time in 20 years my legs match my arms!

The Can You Case It crew has a great color challenge going on!! It was great opportunity for me to break in the new goodies that I bought out of the new catalog!! The colors are below and if you click on the image it will take you right to CYCI!! You should join the fun!

This card started with a beautiful base of Sahara Sand card stock. I then added a quick layer of Basic Black card stock and then trimmed a piece of the NEW Timeless Elegance DSP that looks like a black lace on top of a Sahara Sand back ground. This entire pack of paper is simply amazing. The Sahara Sand square is 3.75" x 3.75". I then cut Very Vanilla 3.5" x 3.5" and stamped the Definitely Dahlia Background stamp in Blushing Bride. The sentiment is from Birthday Blossoms. I stamped this using Versamark and then used the Stampin' Emboss Powder in Black with our Heat Tool. The cute little embellishment in the top left was made using the Sahara Sand Lace, Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon and then topped off with a Something Borrowed Embellishment. I still felt as though the card was needing just a little something. So I took 3 of the Basic Rhinestones on the bottom right to keep things balanced!

Phew!! This card brewed ALL NIGHT last night! I have another one brewing with some new goodies as well!! Maybe I will show you on Friday?!
Have a fabulous day!!
