Look at all those GOODIES...a retail value of $39.79...for ONLY $28.95!!

Now that you can see the stamp set, let me share a few details I used to create this card. :) 

Take a look at the "stripes" on the Sapphire Blue CS...
These "stripes" were created by stamping the flagpole...take another look!!

I LOVE to use my stamps in "non-traditional" ways. :) I call it my "brain exercise" for the day! LOL! 

You can also see the fun stars stamped in Cranberry ink on top of the Cranberry Cardstock.  A great subtle way to create your OWN designer paper. :) 
I did add a piece of our Black & Gold was the perfect touch. :) 

Here's another close up shot of the cotton candy.  
Can you see it?? The Clear Shimmer Brush came in very handy, to give this some sparkle and shine!  

Let's take a look at the photo above again - the background uses the FUN harlequin stamp design.  This was created by using 2nd generation of the black ink.  Here's a closer look at the stamp set design. 

 For my card design, I pulled out our BEAUTIFUL, NEW Make It From Your Heart, vol 4 CARDMAKING How-To-Book!! This card's design came from Pattern #4 in this book. 

I LOVE this new MIFYH (Make It From Your Heart) Idea book & while there are fabulous card sketches inside - CTMH has made it even BETTER with the tips & techniques scattered throughout this book too!!  It's perfect! :) 

I hope you enjoyed this card, and were INSPIRED today!! :) 

Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Darlys'  Blog to see her beautiful creation!
