I followed the color lines for the Lullaby DSP...Crisp Cantaloupe and Hello Honey. Baby's First Framelits provided the onesie, bib and duckie. I hope the little duck's eye doesn't look too scary! All the pearls are showing a shadow in the middle!
I thought the pearls really gave the card the girl-ish punch it needed!
Here is a close-up of the heat-embossed message....Confession: I cheated with Crushed Curry embossing powder, but it looks like it belongs, doesn't it?
I finished the card with a splatter of Gorgeous Grunge in Hello Honey and used the Sweetheart Punch for the designer paper heart.
Due to mandatory re-piping in my condo this week, I don't know how much I will be able to blog. My animals and I have to vacate the premises while the re-piping is being done.
:( (Sniff!) I'll miss my craft room!

I had to use a little larger circle, but there is some flexibility in the sketches, I believe. I don't know why, but I love the skinny cards!
Again, I've turned to the Painted Blooms DSP from the Occasions Catalog, but this card is monochromatic and without blooms.....well, I guess you could count the Pearls as blooms!
Here is a little closer look at the pearls...I could have colored them with Blendies, but chose to keep them white. There will be other cards and other opportunities.... Don't miss out on this very sweet stamp set...It is so versatile and one never knows what will stay or go when the Occasions Catalog says "Bye-Bye" on March 31st!
Susan Suggests: I cut out the circle frame for the tree by placing together two circle framelits that are close in size. By skimming the edge of the tree circle with a sponge dauber and Garden Green ink, I was able to hide any "white" areas on the inner circle.

Another try with Painted Petals and Painted Blooms DSP!
The first design element I thought of when I saw the sketch was the On Film Framelit that actually works as a frame for the image....then I decided to keep the background DSP continuous outside and within the frame.
I daubered the rim of the oval with Wild Wasabi ink just to give it a little definition and used a couple of the blooms with the longer stems for the image...and some Daffodil Delight splashes of color.
I like the happy colors! The bow is Daffodil Delight cotton ribbon. The Rose-Red message from A Dozen Thoughts is stamped on one of the trim die-cuts from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits...it was a perfect size for the message which I absolutely love! Especially the font!
Here is a graphic of the Weekly Deals...good through March 2
(Click to buy from me) Mmmm...twine or ribbon?

I paper-pierced around the edge of the die-cut circle, however can you see it? I think I should have created an "edge" around the circle to distinguish it from the background a little better...Hmmmm?
The large leaf traveling up the left side of the circle was die-cut with the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die from Garden Green card stock....the other greens are Wild Wasabi, but I wanted the leaf stem to stand out so I used a darker card stock.
I love thick twine...finally got a chance to use this Wild Wasabi Thick Twine from Painted Blooms Cotton Twine (Occasions Catalog).
All in all, this card is a Spring-ish, romantic card that I know will make someone happy!

I used the Labels Framelits to frame the message and stamped a little border on the bottom from Borderettes, then popped it up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
Wow! When you see the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog, it looks so boring! The six different glossy patterns on this white paper resist ink and are anything BUT boring whether they are colored or left alone! This is such an awesome idea for background paper!
And it's FREE with a $50 Stampin' Up! order!
I sponged three colors onto the DSP...easy!
Here's a look at some of the shine on the Strawberry Slush side...
Banners Framelits in Baked Brown Sugar (that name makes me hungry!) complete the picture and I added some sweet pearls as a small embellishment.
And a bit more gloss shows up next on the Pistachio Pudding section...
