Birds and Blooms Sizzix diecut

REMEMBER:  TOMORROW IS THE DAY!  Stampin’ Up! is offering some extra special sale prices on selected merchandise just in time for  gift giving (even if the gift is for yourself!)  Check my WEBSITE tomorrow for more details, once there click on Shop Now in the upper right corner.  First ordered, first served.  There will be limited quantities available!  Don’t miss out!

I wanted to share with you a card that I received because I think it is spectacular!  I participated in a red/white/blue challenge on one of my groups.  We were partnered with a person and had to send them a card.  I showed you mine a few days ago.  Here is the one that I received in return from Laura Lipe.  Isn’t it wonderful?  No stamping on it.  Just the Sizzix exclusive dies from Stampin’ Up! and some designer paper, punches, ribbon and cardstock.  I love it!

Notice how she used the wide oval punch behind the bird and then the large star punch behind the word PEACE.  What a great patriotic card!  Also notice the rounded corners on each layer.  I never think to do that.  Also how she tied a little Pacific Point ribbon along with the Riding Hood Red.  Of course, I already love the Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White colors together!

Thanks again for a great card, Laura!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the Diva Coffee Break Designer challenges!
