And Sale-a-Bration is officially over! I hope you were able to get your favorite items before the close of the sale because all the free items are gone for now. That means we get to focus on the yearly catalog again, which means lots of great choices, colors, and coordination. Despite the seemingly nice weather gradually rolling into the area, this has been a crazy week for me, from computer problems to celebrating birthdays to medication backfires to starting new treatment routines…among other things. With that in mind, I decided to rehash one of my favorite cards I made as a challenge called “card guts”. I had a lot of fun making it, and think it turned out cute. It still represents Spring to me. Let me know what you think.
In this card you see the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and matching Detailed Dragonfly Framelits, Whisper White, Old Olive, and Lemon Lime Twist card stock. The ink is Basic Black, and in the middle of the black dots, which were made with the 1/2″ circle punch, are some Basic Pearls. While there are a couple retired products in this card, it’s still a cute card. Great substitutes for the retired DSP would be the Color Theory DSP or the Petal Garden DSP. An excellent replacement for the ribbon would be the Pick A Pattern Washi Tape, in Black of course, and using some Black card stock with A Wink of Stella, or maybe even some silver glitter held in place with the Fine Tip Glue.
This is a super easy, super quick card that is perfect for any Spring occasion! If you like the idea of this card, or any of the other projects on my blog, stop by my store and shop around. I look forward to becoming your Stampin’ UP demonstrator and sharing my ideas with you.

So cute, and I love how the shadow falls on the dragonflies. Hugs, Di
Pretty card! I really like the way you used the black/white striped ribbon, too.
