Sale-a-bration card for TSOT

I don't know if I've admitted it before but I have a really bad habit of leaving my stamping projects to the very last minute.  I had a big workshop to put on last night and wanted to show off some of my Sale-a-bration stuff but just couldn't get it "right".  Yet again, Try Stampin' On Tuesday saved the day!!!  They always have great sketches and wonderful examples.  I particularly liked this sketch because it allowed me to show off a whole lot of DSP and other Sale-a-bration items in one card.

Here is the sure to see what the blog contributors and challenge participants have come up with by clicking on the image:

And here is what I came up with:

A Patterned elephant on Sycamore Street
I just LOVE this little elephant from the "Patterned Occasions" Sale-a-bration stamp set.    It's just so cute and can be very versatile.  It lends itself so well to selective colouring with Stampin' Write markers.

I also really like the DSP in the Sale-a-bration is called "Sycamore Street".  It's got a great colour combination and is really quite fun....if you can call paper "fun"!  And to make things even better, there is matching ribbon and buttons!!!!  That's why I love Stampin' Up!  Everything matches!  Remember, you too can have these items FREE me TODAY to learn how.

Here are all of the details of the supplies I used for this card:

Stamp Sets:  Patterned Occasions
Paper:  Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo, Sycamore Street DSP (SAB)

Ink:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango....Stampin' Write Markers

Accessories:  Ribbon and Buttons from the "Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack"

Happy Stamping!
