New SU Goodies!!Yayy!!

So, I have been saving my money and pinching my pennies(not really, but I did save) so that when the new catalog came out, and Salebration started, I could place a huge order!! Well, I am happy to say that my HUGE order came yesterday and I have been staring at my box full of goodies since yesterday afternoon. I got most of the new accessories, some of the new paper, and a ton of new stamp sets....yayy me!! When I saw today's color challenge, I knew I wanted to use this GORGEOUS flower from the new Ever After set. I paired it with the challenge colors, and a one of the sentiments from the new Friends 24-7 set. I stamped the flower(anyone know what kind it is?? I am clueless) on Whisper White with Black Ink. I then used my blender pen and SU markers to color it in. It was layered with the challenge colors, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum and Kiwi Kiss. The DP is from the Pink Pirouette Patterns DSP and was cut out using my Top Note die. I then added some Piggy Tales SU ribbon around the center(don't really like the way it looks now, but Jared is here so no time to nitpick). The white layer was run through the Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder, but you could EASILY substitute one of the new Texture plates(anyone know if they work in the Cuttlebug?). I punched the sentiment out with my 1 1/4in circle punch, and then the other layers with my other SU circle punches. I added some PP grosgrain and white taffeta on spiral clips and did a lot of piercing. I really love this card, and I think it will brighten the day of the person I am sending it to, don't you!! Well, Jared is getting sleepy so I better go, thanks for looking!! By the way, two days ago he started to crawl!! Fun times!!
