It's Finally Friday!!

Happy Friday, stamping friends! Whew, it has been a long week. I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend  :}
For today's project, I made a card using a sketch from Stampin' Connection - an online forum just for Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
The Crumb Cake layer is dry embossed using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. After embossing it with the Big Shot, I smoothed it back down, so that the texture would be more subtle, and then I spritzed it with a Peach Parfait Marker in the Color Spritzer Tool.
I cut four 1/2" wide strips of Everyday Enchantment DSP in different lengths, and then snipped the flaggie-thingies into the ends.
The flower image from Mixed Bunch is stamped in Peach Parfait ink onto Peach Parfait card stock, and then punched out using the Blossom punch. I stamped the flower center (also from Mixed Bunch) in Lucky Limeade ink onto Very Vanilla card stock, and then punched it out using the 1" Circle punch. I added a Crumb Cake Flower Brad to the center for just a simple embellishment. Instead of punching out some leaves, I decided to use three snips of Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon, which I curled up by running them along the edge of my Snips (closed).
Here's a close-up so you can see those details:

Access to Stampin' Connection is another great reason to join the Stampin' Up! family. There are over 200,000 project samples, made by Demos at every experience level, with more samples added every day. Plus, there are tons and tons of discussions about workshop ideas, business tips, and product knowledge. And if that's not enough, thousands of Demos are available to offer you a kind word and a virtual "hug" if you ever need one  :}  There are so many benefits for joining "the family," including a discount.
