  • I dusted off my Color Spritzer Tool and love the stunning, painterly effects it offers.  Question #1:  Why don't I get this tool out more often?
  • Question #2:  Why did it take me so long to use my Stampin' Up! Blue Denim Ribbon?  This was my "maiden voyage" with it and it's a delight to work with.  Gorgeous with Night of Navy.
  • You can crop the card front flap to any size you want.  I first stamped the Just Believe stems on the right in order to gauge how much to remove from the card front.  I cropped this card at 2 3/4".
  • A few Night of Navy Designer Buttons (Regals Designer Buttons) add texture and charm.  I'm a stickler for a finished look and added White Baker's Twine so they look stitched.

One of the really cool Stampin' Up! demonstrator achievement events is attending Founder's Circle.  Those attending swapped their "best stuff" and the layout of my card was inspired by the beautiful card below, designed by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Colleen Magness.
