Life Doesn't Have To Be Perfect card

For this card I wanted to use Stampin' Up!'s new DSP called Sweet Sorbet (available only during Sale-A-Bration).  The colors were bright and I just loved how the Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit and Whisper White colors go together.  I have even substituted Smoky Slate or the Silver Glimmer Paper (like I did here) for the Basic Black color.  I started with a Crisp Cantaloupe card base and decided to add a touch of Pool Party by cutting a Top Note die in half.  It gave the card the perfect amount of Pool Party color and added some dimension to the card as well.  Adding some Silver Glimmer Paper punched out using a 2 1/2" Circle Punch was the perfect addition under the new Perfect Pennants stamped greeting which was also punched out using the Decorative Label Punch.  All of it came together quickly once I began layering the DSP, Top Note layer and the Silver Glimmer Paper with multi-colored greeting onto the Crisp Cantaloupe card base.  I added the coffee cup from the Perfect Blend stamp set onto the Pool Party Top Note layer to give the card even more dimension and something else to catch some one's eye.  You could easily replace the coffee cup with any stamped image you want (a butterfly, a bird, a heart, a flower)...the options are endless.  Give this layout a try and feel free to share it with me.  I love to see new cards using a layout one of the bakers has presented here on Pink Paper Bakery!
