Stampin' Up! Australia - Sale-a-bration 2014 - Stampin' Up! Petal Parade


I have finally got around to playing in a Dynamic Duos Challenge again, and have created a card for my inaugural entry for the Fusion Card Challenge! I used the sketch only for the Fusion Card Challenge.

I have used the new Sale-a-bration set Petal Parade for my main images and Happy Day for my sentiment. I love the versatility of this new SAB set....I'm going to be using it a LOT! 

All you have to do to get this set for free is place an order of $90 with me between 28 January and 31 March 2014. Just send me an email if you would like a Sale-a-bration brochure...there's tonnes of cool stuff on offer! :)

  2. Beautiful, Alison! Great combination of the colours and the sketch! I love it! :-)

  3. Wow--you nailed the sketch and it looks awesome in this week's challenge colours from Dynamic Duos. I love the repetition of the Dahlia image in the peek of doily and that little yellow flower--great design instinct!

  4. Absolutely beautiful card Allison. Such a gorgeous way to interpret the sketch. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fusion!

  5. Love that little flower and the touch of doily! Thanks for playing with Fusion this week! Hope to see you again!

  6. Wow, this is gorgeous Alison. It grabbed my attention as soon as I saw it. I love the clean, bright, happy feel to the card. The use of the Dahlia embellishment is very clever.

  7. Wow! You could not have captured the sketch any better! I love the colors you chose...so nice to see green paired with yellow after seeing so much green and red for Christmas. Love the resin flower you used for a little bling!

  8. Beautiful card :) I love the embellishment of flower :) So glad, you joined in the fun at Fusion!!

  9. Oh Alison, I love how you use the circles from the sketch. Great card. Thanks for playing along with us in the Fusion card challenge and hope to see you again.

  10. Way to take liberty with the colors on this (at least from Fusion perspective) and make them work for DD. This is stunning and I love how you place the elements! Thanks for playing with us at Fusion!

  11. Beautiful, Alison! Love the clean, crisp stamping! Thanks for joining DD!
