Sale-A-Brate Birthdays!

Can you believe Sale-A-Bration is almost one month old?  That means we only get one more month to enjoy free products when you place a qualifying order, and bonus products when you host a Stampin' Up! party or join my team.  Did you forget what all the hubbub is about?  Check out this post that tells you all about it: SALE-A-BRATION TIME!

Today's card features three of the products you can get free during Sale-A-Bration:

Colors: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo, and Summer Starfruit.  Stamps: Patterned Occasions (SAB Exclusive).  Big Shot: Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Punch: XL Oval. Accessories: Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (SAB Exclusive), Sycamore Street Buttons (SAB Exclusive), Many Marvelous Markers.
This card felt like a stretch for me.  These aren't colors and patterns I would normally put together, but with all the combining of Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango in the Designer Series Paper this year, I am starting to get used to that combo with other bright colors.  Also, I have noticed a trend this year to more "white space" on cards.  IMHO, this card works because the card base is white. The paper, buttons and stamps are exclusive to Sale-A-Bration. So once it ends on March 22, they will no longer be available. 

My next class coming up March 15 and 16 is my annual Birthday Bash Buffet.  Who doesn't need dozens or birthday cards every year?  This is my class devoted only to birthday cards and I only do it once a year so you won't want to miss out.  This will be one of the cards that I will be offering during the that class.  More details coming in the next week or so.

I agree with everybody else, cute and fun! Sometimes it is good to stretch the old creative style, and surprise yourself!
