I have a challenging card to share with you today- I mean seriously challenging!  I pushed myself outside my comfort zone to complete this project, I tried to test the waters a little and I struggled a bit… tell me what you think.

I had a few challenges in hand to start my creative flow… I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and the colors from Play Date Cafe.
I decided to (without the help of my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) create a banner along the outer edge of my ribbon using the sentiment for this AWESOME stamp set!  I love this sentiment and I actually am thinking this is a great card for a boy, especially considering the colors, that was until…

I BLINGED THE CRAP OUT OF THE CROWN, LOL!!! I couldn’t stop myself, maybe its not too girly?? I stamped it in Sahara Sand (which is very light and almost non-existent) I colored the LARGEST RHINESTONES dark blue, the middle sized Rhinestones Tangerine, and the strip of smallest Rhinestones in Pool Party.  I used my Marvelous Markers (in Midnight Muse, Tangerine and Pool Party) to fill in and embellish the crown.

Are you ready for an exciting announcement that I found out about yesterday??? I have been DYING to tell you, and haven’t had the chance- UNTIL NOW!!!  Stampin’ Up! Announced yesterday-
When you host a party or submit a personal order of at least $350 YOU GET $30 MORE in FREE Hostess Rewards, that means you get a total of $80 OF FREE PRODUCT!!!!! Seriously, I’m not kidding!! And it get’s even better…
If you decide to take the plunge and JOIN MY TEAM and become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator between NOW and May 30th you get to select $30 MORE PRODUCT in your Starter Kit, AND you can even select PRE-ORDER NEW CATALOG PRODUCTS for your Starter Kit as well (email me and ask me how). 
So for $99 you would get $155 worth of product!! HOLY CRAP!!
and if you remember… I gave you an outline of how you can get your your Starter Kit for FREE plus almost $95 in hostess rewards, check it out HERE.  So between your hostess rewards and your Starter Kit supplies you could get up to $250 worth of product for nearly nothing!!!  If you have ever thought about JOINING MY TEAM now is the time to consider it SERIOUSLY… if you want to talk about this outline a little more (so that it makes sense, LOL!, just contact me and I am more than happy to break it down for you.)
