Sneak Peak!! Just for You

Each year, Stampin' Up! changes out 6 of their colors, In Colors, to keep our choices fresh and in style with current color trends. This year is no exception! Here's a card just for you with a few sneak peaks at some of the new products in the 2009-2010 catalog! What do you think of those colors?? I hope you like them, because I a few of theNEW 2009-2010 "In Colors" are featured on this card: Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, and Crushed Curry!
Want to take a sneak peak at ALL of the NEW In Colors?? I thought so! Allow me to introduce you, in order, to Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, and Soft Suede!!
I think my favorite is Rich Razzleberry, yum! It looks delicious!
Ok, ok, back to my card. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the layout (although, I admit, I didn't exactly stick strictly to it!). The sketch is shown here:
This is not your everyday, run-of-the-mill, card size! I guess every once in a while I need to get out of my 4.25x5.5" comfort zone and 'stretch' out my card a bit! The dimensions I used are: 7"x4". I love to mix and match stamp sets just to see what "plays nicely together". That is definitely the case here. I used Eastern Blooms, Bird on a Branch, Teeny Tiny Wishes (New!!), and Circle Circus (New!!) stamp sets. (Click on any images you would like a close-up of!) I can tell you already that the In Color Polka Dot Ribbon is going to be on a lot of my projects this year because it is so cute, not to mention versatile! The opposite side is plain grosgrain, so it can be used with polka dots or without. It's like the Day and Evening look for ribbon! The NEW Razzleberry Lemonade DSP adds a lot of sweet, and not much sour! Look all all the fantastic prints!

For that final touch, I got out my paper piercing tool and placed (3) 5/16" whisper white brads at the left base of the card. Adding a little something at the bottom corner of a card often gives it a finished looked because it balances what is going on at the top part of the card. With a longer card like this, a "little something" was definitely needed. You like what you see??
