Sale-A-Bration starts today!!

Sale-A-Bration starts today and runs through until the end of March. This is a fabulous opportunity to earn some free stamp sets with purchase. The choices are really excellent with a ribbon bundle and designer paper pack also added this year.
I just placed a big order this morning as soon as I opened my eyes so I will be posting a ton of samples as soon as my box of goodies arrives. Stay tuned!

(If you want to take advantage of the same deals I did, just click the Shop Now button on my Stampin' Up demonstrator web page.)






This is a fast and fun layout with the added bonus of a removable bookmark. I always like it when you can get a little extra keepsake in addition to the card itself.
I stamped the background in Pirouette Pink ink on Pretty In Pink cardstock and also added some leaf outlines in Versamark.
The Lavender Lace scallop circle is from the Big Shot die and the flowers were stamped in Old Olive and the colored in with Pretty In Pink and Lavender Lace re-inkers. Scallop was taped to card on outside edges only. Bookmark (2 1/4" x 4") was stamped in same ink colors as mentioned (stamped off once for a lighter effect). Hole punch with pink grosgrain ribbon and tag corner punch used to finish.

This is beautiful and to think I was making bookmarks today to accompany a devotional lesson I am doing for the ladies in our church next Sunday. Your card idea would make for a wonderful presentation of them. TFS!
