Necessities Bags Sacramento Fundraiser Card...

Today's card is another one we made at the Necessities Bags Sacramento fundraiser.  The flowers are from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set which retired but you could use the flower from the Summer Solstice set which is in the new catalog.  The sentiment came from the Thank You Kindly stamp set which is also retired.  Made For You, a new set, has a great "thank you" as well as a "happy birthday" and an "especially for you" - all three for just $8.95.  That is less than $3 per stamp (in clear amount)!

The pearls are colored with a Sharpie marker but I just learned from another demonstrator (thank you Tina Shelton) that you can lightly coat the pearls with Modge Podge and then use Stampin' Up!'s markers to get a perfect match for your card.  Isn't that awesome! 

The colors are Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait which are now retired.  By using these materials, I ended up with very little left over when they finally retired.  The card would still look great in Pumpkin Pie and Real Red or perhaps even in Raspberry Ripple - one of our new in colors!
