SUO Challenge #142

The Stampin Up' Only (SUO) Challenge for  Feb 16th to Feb 27th is to use SU Sale-a-bration products!  See the link here to play along.  I wasn't going to order any of the stamps, just consumable product, such as the Botannical Designer Vellum Stack.  That was my starting point.  Then I caved.  I pre-ordered the Peddle Pusher set and cool metallic glitter tape so I could get this set (What I Love).  I have another order coming tomorrow with the Party Pants set.  Too much fun!

sets - What I Love
cs - whisper white, elegant eggplant, wisteria wonder
ink - old olive, elegant eggplant, wisteria wonder
access - rhinestone jewels, bitty banner and 1" square punches

 I made this card for my in-laws to take to a b-day party next weekend.  I figure that someone turning 100 years old deserves a special card, and I wanted to use some of the metallic glitter tape!  place the larger end of the black piece on the brushed gold piece with 1/2" border around it.  The left flap folds in and then the right flap folds over and tucks into the balloons on the front (which are popped up on dimensionals) to hold it in place.
