It's A Beautiful Day

Sparkle N Sprinkle recently released four new sets.  Beach Babes includes three adorable images designed by Michelle Perkett as digital images. If you prefer to stamp with rubber, you can now get all three of these girls of summer in this great set.

 
 
One of my favorite card types is a Center Step Card.  I added cardstock and a sticker frame from Basic Grey’s Lauderdale set, surrounded by strips of 1/8” and 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" covered with Parisian Mist and Priceless Peacock glitter.  This created the perfect setting for Penny.

I spread some of the Breeze Sea Glass Mudd Puddles over the bottom third of the image before adding the frame.  The sentiment is from the Girls of Summer Set and is layered at the bottom of the frame with some sparkly waves created by using flourish dies and 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". 

Head on over to the SNS blog for more details on this card.

I have to say a big thank you to my friend, Kim, who put up with my indecisiveness and gave me her thoughtful opinion as I put this card together.  Signs of a true friend!!

Fabulous step card. Love the shell border punch on the sides and great colors. Think I need to order some Mud Puddles - looks so fun.

Wow, Marie! This is really gorgeous - such brilliantly rich colors. The stripes of glitter look fantastic, too! Wouldn't this be added to the SNS T&T template for the center step card? Feel free to send it to me if you think so to be entered in the contest!
