Step it Up Cards: Best of Everything Take 2

On Wednesday, I showed you a card I made for a swap on Stampin' Addicts: Best of Everything Take 1   I promised to show you the "Stepped Up" version of the card today. Drum roll please:

Colors: Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Pool party.  Stamps: Best of Everything.  Big Shot: Adorning Accents Edgelits and Embossing Folders, Labels Collection Framelits, Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  Punches: Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  Accessories: Mini Brads, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon.
As you can see, a lot changed on this stepped up version of the card.  Instead of the striped Designer Series Paper, I opted to use regular card stock and spiff it up with the Edgelits and matching embossing folders.  I embossed the bottom Framelit layer.  I added another color to the mix with Pool Party flowers on the branch and ribbon running around the card.

This was a fun swap to do. And I hope to get to play in another one again soon. Next week, my company goes home and I'll have more time to use my new stuff.  Come back on Monday and hold me to it. :)

Oh wow! That card is amazing! You didn't just step it up, you knocked it out of the park!! Love all of the textures!

This is so pleasing to my eye! Particularly like the tree turned into a tree limb with a birdie strutting...
