Not quite 40 shades of green for 'Go that girl!' ...

hi all

well just a little card this week - very little in the way of stamping - more an exercise in co-ordination and how Stampin Up make that so easy. 

With everything in the Stampin Up catalogues described in such a way so you know what compliments what - whether its a stamp set, a particular punch, a set of dies for shape cutting or what colours co-ordinate with a  designer series paper pack - they list it all.

- so no guess work involved on your part and you know your finished item will look stunning.

That was the case here - I chose Pear Pizzazz for my colour base for this good luck card, matted on Very Vanilla cardstock, and topped with toning designer series paper.

Come and see what I managed to make with a few scraps.

 I did  make use of both current and retired papers I had in my snips box,  punched  a set of 4 little hearts to make my 4-leafed clover and used the 'So Happy for You' set for both the stalk and the Good luck'  sentiment. 
Although now retired,  another favourite which I do keep close at hand!

...but of course you could easily substitute all these for items of your own. 

A bit of sponging round the edge and paper piercing to add some interest,  along with my beloved rhinestones for a bit of bling. All finished off with a seam binding/brad bow, and the top layer popped up on Stampin Dimensionals. 

 If you look closely you can see I also went just a tiny bit dot happy with my Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds stamping glitter - 

... well you can't have enough glimmer and glitter in my book!.  I decorated the inside with a  strip of paper punched with my dotted scallop ribbon punch,  just to lift it a bit.

 I do love the way it all went together,  knowing that everything just goes!

I hope you like it.

just to add... this was for my lovely sister who is partway through a college course and just heard she has been offered a 2nd  interview for a job to follow.

So we are all jumping about here and crossing finges, toes, and anything else that comes to mind - in the hope that she is successful.
