Stylin' Stampin' Squad Spring Catalog Hop

 It's another month of blog hopping and this month the Stylin' Stampin' Squad is focusing on the Spring Catalog and/or products that are coming up during Sale-A-Bration (which starts on January 22nd!) If you're following the hop, that means you're coming on over from Justin's blog -- welcome! I decided to do a little bit of both Spring Catalog and SAB products for my card creation mostly because I wanted to play with some colors that I don't normally choose to work with. This card will definitely be in the category of "extra postage" if you were sending it in the mail! ;)

A little extra decorating for the inside to add a little more fun...

And, then I added the same DSP on the envelope flap for some more pizzazz!

Card Recipe 
Stamp Set: retired sentiment
Paper: Sahara Sand, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Sycamore Street DSP (2013 SAB)
Ink: Tangerine Tango
Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels (2013 Spring Catalog), Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack (2013 SAB)
Tools: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch (2013 Spring Catalog)

I was knocked out with the cold flu throughout the weekend and all day Monday, so I was happy to get into my craft room and have something to work on! It's been almost a month since I have done anything crafty, especially with the busy holiday season and then my craft room makeover, so I felt a little "rusty". Hopefully this is a jump start to getting my creativity back because there's a busy month with lots of things to create!

OK, next stop is to head on over to Jennifer's blog at NW Stamper to see what she has to share with us...something beautiful as always, I have no doubt! Thanks for stopping by...hope to see you again!
