WOW...such beautiful colors for us this week at Create with Connie & Mary. I'm really beginning to like working with Basic Gray. I've forced myself to use it more and more and now I almost prefer it to black!

Here is the color line-up for this week:

Ooooh, lots of new goodies displayed here on this card. Well, almost new by now as we are 2 months into the "Spring Catalog". It is so jammed-packed with new stuff that I really haven't played with all of it more than maybe once or twice each so far! Anyway, here is my card for this week:

I love all the feminine details offered by the Stampin' Up! products I used today. The cute little flower is from the "5/8" Flower Trim". 2 yards of flowers on a strip of tulle. I used my "Paper Snips" to cut one off and then using a "Sponge Dauber" and  "Basic Gray Ink", sponged the top of the flower to color it:

Do you like the tri-colored chevrons? I stamped the outline first using the coordinating inks and then hand-cut with my "Paper Snips" and added a "Rhinestone Jewel" to each center:

Here's a little more detail to the "Dress Up Framlits Dies" below. I added a string of "Rhinestone Jewels" to create a necklace and the dress shape sits on an oval cut with the "Ovals Collection Framelits" that has been embossed with the "Stripes Textured Impressions Folder":
