SALE-A-BRATION - WHOOHOO! AND, FACT TWO

Hi all! Well, the first of February is almost here and you know what that means, right? Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration month baby!! I love it - free stamps AND rub-ons??? I mean, come on, who doesn't? And, the stamp sets and rub-ons are so stinkin' cute, I love them all! As a demo, I was able to preorder some SAB stuff and you know I did *wink*. So, here's the deal: for every $50 in Stampin' Up! product purchased you receive a free Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration stamp set or set of rub-ons. Hostesses receive a free set for every $300 in party sales. New recruits can get ANY stamp set free(up to 47.95)from the current catalog, and current demonstrators can earn free stamp sets based on sales during Sale-a-bration. Pretty cool, huh? I know I love it! Today's card is made with the SAB set So Many Scallops which I love because it works so well with our Circle Scallop punch. And, all the SAB sets are die cut so I had it mounted in like ten seconds! I love that! So, here is the card. I love the way the Jumbo Eyelets fit right in the middle of the flowered sayings, I think it really adds some pop to the card. I used the same stamps for the background as well which pulls all the layers together. The flowers are popped up on dimensionals at differing heights to give the feeling of a bouquet. And, of course my DP is the yummy Ginger Blossom in the new catalog. The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory and the recipe is below. Before I get to that though, I need to leave my second fact of the 100 for my scrapbook page challenge so here goes:
FACT #2
My husband and I have two anniversaries and we celebrate both. We got married in a small civil ceremony on 30 January 1993 for home buying purposes. However, we had a huge wedding on 22 May 1993, which is the only one family knew about until recently. And, tomorrow will be 15 years for us - whoo hoo!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Kraft, Cameo Coral, Whisper White, Ginger Blossom DP
Stamps - So Many Scallops, Much Appreciated (for the sentiment)
Inks - Black Stazon, Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss
Accessories - Corner Rounder, Circle Scallop Punch, Dimensionals,
Jumbo Eyelets, Cropadile, Very Vanilla Grosgrain, Vintage brads
