Card Club Swap

Hi Friends!
What a whirlwind of a week- we are super busy at home and at work. Which is why I need my stamping even keep my balance. So today's card is one I made for this month's SU! Stamp Club card swap. These are strictly SU! but it is fine to use retired products. We make 12 cards so I try to make CAS cards, but unless I case a blogland favorite my cards are more CAL - clean and layered & often with DP. I love DP...duh...Paper Dreams!

Onto the card details...the base is retired Yo-Yo Yellow which exhausted that color from my supplies. The other colors are Wild Wasabi & Peach Parfait. The DP is from the 2010-2012 In Color Pattern Stack. I really love these papers & even though they are retiring in a day, I still have lots left so I'll be using them for card swaps & my CB42DD project. (Card box for two dear daughters who requested a card supply of their own since they no longer live at home & can't raid my stash.)

The images are from SU! Aviary set & the sentiment is from a retired Sale-a-bration set called Love you Bunches (circa 2005). This was my first Sale-a-bration set & probably one of my first ten stamp sets. The sentiment fit perfectly so I went with it. The layered sentiment is made with the Modern Label punch. The yellow and green punched out shapes were each cut in half and separated across the back of the white layer to form the layering on the front. Paper piercing in the corners and a little bling are the added details.

This card qualifies for the SU!Only #46 challenge to capture something about bright summer days & my color combination certainly fits. Have a great rest of your week!

Hugs, Marilyn
