Something Wonderful!

Well, life is moving fast here in Lilesland, but I did get a chance to sit down and make this card the other day.  I actually had started it before we even moved (almost 3 weeks ago!), and it never came to fruition until now.

I used a bunch of my REVERSE CONFETTI collection.  OMG, Jen and I are in the process of planning MAY'S release--it's going to be FABULOUS!

I had stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the PAPER CRANE set onto the black to start this card off (I love that look!).  The card layout started as something completely different, but I just wasn't ever happy with it, so this is what I ended up with.  It's really a simple design and great as a "go to" look that can be tweaked a bunch to make it look different every time.  I stamped the hot pink panel with WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS but the ink faded and sadly, you can't see it very well.

The big yellow banner shape is actually the large die from the TAG ME die set and then I used the hearts from the LOVE NOTE die set for my embellishments.  The cute border along the bottom is simply cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER's 2, 2, 2 dies in one!  (Does anyone else remember that Certs commercial besides me?)

Anyway, today is our "start date" on the building of our new home.  I plan on putting a little mini book together of the progress.

I'll be sharing some photos here along the way as well, if y'all don't mind!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  On those trendy flag-ended banners:  I think folks either love them or are done with them.  I happen to love them and don't see banners dying out any time soon.  They are still making their way into (onto?) the newest paper collections and crafting products.  Use a little cluster of them to embellish/carry out a color theme on your card or project.  It's a banner idea.
