I am ready to throw a HOLY fit.....

....if Season of Friendship doesn't make it into the new catalog!!! Please...please...please let it be in the new cattie!!!!!! {fingers crossed, staying away from black cats, turning my head when I see a ladder, throwing salt over my shoulder any chance I get......}
This card is for last week's Blogger's Challenge - 80 - to use baja breeze - LOVE IT!, use chocolate chip - LOVE IT!, and to use any red - LOVE IT!!!! I did not have a second to create last week to have this done on time, but the second I had a free minute last night...I pumped this card out! I absolutely love it, and I hope you do too!!!

The main image is the tree from Season of Friendship - I'm telling you.....it will get ugly if this tree does not make it into the new catalog!!! lol!!! I stamped it in chocolate chip ink. The little hearts are from the new punch, heart to heart, that is available in the new bundle - don't miss out on getting it for a discount!!! I adhered them down with my 2 way glue pen and then accented them with dazzling diamonds - love the bling!!! I stamped the little bird from Season of Friendship in baja breeze and mounted him up on a stampin' dimensional. The real red designer series paper is from the patterns pack in the level one hostess pack. I scalloped the bottom with my scallop edge punch. That entire panel was matted with chocolate chip and then in baja breeze. The 5/8th inch real red grosgrain ribbon was tied around all three panels. My sentiment is from Short and Sweet. I punched it with the word window punch and then tied it around the ribbon with linen thread. I liked the "dangly" look but wanted it more controlled. I adhered it to the ribbon with a mini glue dot up by the linen thread hole. The entire panel is mounted up on stampin' dimensionals.


I am not sure if you can see the bling in these pictures or not...but they are so sparkly in real life! Here is a closer look at that :)
