Hi Everyone! So glad you are visiting today. Before I start off with my challenge card, have you signed up for the Spring Collection edition yet at Create with Connie & Mary? Click below to do so:

And now for this weeks challenge. We have a sketch for you!

And this is my card using the "Good As Gold Kit" from our "Sale-A-Bration Flyer" that you can earn for free starting January 28th:

I used a few pieces from the kit and dressed it up! I started with a card base of "Pistachio Pudding Cardstock". Notice my beautiful flowers?

We at Stampin' Up! have a brand new die that cuts the shape you need to create these flowers. All you have to do is cut, roll and glue and your done! The die is called "Spiral Flower". You can roll them tight or loose to change the size of your flowers. I tucked some branches between the flowers from the "Bird Punch" to finish off the cluster!

I also ended up using the gold envelope liner that comes with the kit for one of my banners. I hand-cut the shape and embossed it with the "Decorative Dots Embossing Folder" which is also a new "Sale-A-Bration" freebie that you can earn with a $50 order:
Make sure you visit Create with Connie & Mary to see what else our designers have come up with!
