SASSY TAKE TWO

Happy Friday - whoohoo!! This has been a long week with the kids all home clamoring for Spring Break attention - LOL! I don't mind really, I love spending time with them, and we have done some fun stuff! My daughter will actually be off for another week after this one and then, back to school! I decided I was not ready to put Suzie away and since I still had out all my scraps and my stamp set, I made another Sassy Suzie card. This set is too fun, I tell ya! I used a similar color scheme for this one, but pulled out more of the turquoise in the Dp. The base of the card is Creamy Caramel card stock, layered with Really Rust card stock. Then, I layered two pieces of the East Coast Prep Designer Series paper which I punched with my ticket corner punch. All the other paper is punched with my corner rounder punch. The main image is backed in Tempting Turquoise card stock and stamped using Black stazon ink on Whisper White card stock. I did do some paper piercing and stitching around both the image and the outside edges of the card. I colored in the image using my Stampin' Write Markers. The sentiment is stamped on Tempting Turquoise card stock in black stazon, and punched out using my key tag punch. I added a black brad and popped it up on dimensionals. In the top corners, I added my jumbo pewter eyelets (love them!!) and threaded Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon since it is the closest thing I have to Really Rust and I think it actually looks fine. Lastly, I added two build-a-brads which I made using the flip side of the East Coast dp on the card. This is fun set to play with and see myself making lots of cards with it! Enjoy your Friday and your Easter weekend!!!
