Happy 2012

Hi stampers!  Happy new year!  I'm back with a challenge card today.  I haven't gotten much stamping in as of late and boy is my mojo suffering for it!  I don't think I have a single idea in my body!  I had the day off on Thursday and by the time I got all the stuff I NEEDED to get done (and there was plenty left I could have worked on too) I didn't have much time or energy left!  But, I sat down to work on a card and used the Create With Connie & Mary sketch challenge. 

This card was hard fought!  I just had a hard time coming up with ANYTHING!  And I'm not in love with it but it's better than nothing!  Here's to hoping that my mojo perks up quick!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Easy events, PS I love you
Paper:  Whisper white, crumb cake, blushing bride, calypso coral, lucky limeade
Ink:  Staz-on, calypso coral, lucky limeade, crumb cake
Accessories:  Twitterpatted buttons, crochet thread, edgelits, edge embossing folder, blushing bride pleated ribbon, dazzling details

I used a lot of neat occasion's mini catalog goodies on this card!  It's the first time I got to use the little adorning accents embossing folders.  I LOVE the little hearts!  I totally messed up on my first pre-order and got the edgelits instead of the folders.  I wasn't planning on getting the edgelits either but I have to say I like them!  Can you see that my scalloped edge is scalloped?  There are teeny tiny scallops on each scallop, how cute is that?  And what's cool is that the folders and edgelits work together to cut and emboss!

Anywho, I also used the twitterpatted buttons and satin pleated ribbon which you've seen before here on my blog.  And a little bit of dazzling details over the heart on the tree is the perfect touch.  Maybe the card is growing on me a little:-)  And don't forget that you can get your own occasion's mini merchandise starting on January 4th!

Happy stamping!
