Stampin' Up! to a Challenge

I recently ordered some of the new Stampin' Up! supplies and they arrived last week.  Since I'm a demonstrator, I get a shot at buying some things early and I absolutely took advantage of it. It finally showed up last week and I just got around to playing with it all today. To get even more inspired then I already was by the new In Colors for 2011-2013, I pulled up the sketch from CPS #224:

I started by stamping Delicate Doilies on a piece of Whisper White card stock in three of the the new In Colors - Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Wisteria Wonder.  I punched out the Lace Ribbon Border from a piece of the Pool Party card stock.  I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party, inked the edges slightly and adhered that to a solid piece of the Pool Party.  I cut a 3/4" strip out of the bottom of my doily created background to place the punched lace ribbon over the card background.  I round the corners of all of the pieces, then I adhered all of the layers to a card made from Calypso Coral card stock.  To finish it off, I added three rhinestones.  Here it is - 

There are five In Colors total and I love how they all work together.  They're beautiful colors!  The new catalog begins on Friday and there's lots of great items.
