I have my new catalog and some of my sneak peek order and I finally played today.  I wanted two cards for my Opportunity Night event.  For the first one I decided to use the Stamping 411 sketch as the layout for my card.  I used the new set Friends Never Fade along with the coordinating Designer Series paper Greenhouse Gala.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie and stamped with one of the flower images in the set.  The Greenhouse Gala Designer Series paper is the lowest layer and I used the Scallop Trim Border (remember that one from Sale-A-Bration- it will be back in the new catalog!) to punch the top edge.  There are some pretty papers in this pack – this piece has the colors Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz and Pumpkin Pie in the design.

I added a strip of Pear Pizzaz across the card and then a shorter strip of Chocolate Chip which has a piece of the new 1/8″ Tafetta ribbon in Daffodil Delight wrapped around it.  The Friends image was stamped in Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White card stock and cut out then layered on a piece of Chocolate Chip.  I added a Chocolate Chip designer button that has a piece of the Daffodil ribbon pulled through and tied in a knot.  The ribbon is skinny enough to get it through the button holes!

I used the measurements from the Stamping 411 site for this sketch.  Everyone that came to my Opportunity Night got to make one.  Thanks for stopping by!
