Sale-a-bration Bliss

In honor of Sale-a-bration, here's another quick card.

This is from the Sale-a-bration set that I pre-ordered.  It's called Bliss.  I loved this filigree and it was perfect for the Color Challenge on SCS today.

When I saw the colors, Soft Suede (not a favorite), Elegant Eggplant & Riding Hood Red, I was a bit dismayed.  I've been thinking I'd like to brighten up my cards a bit and this was not working into my plans!

I was trying to figure out how I could use this set and all these colors and I had a Eureka! moment.  Markers, filigree and subtle coloring.

So if you look close all the colors are on there.  I used Whisper White & Crumb Cake for my neutrals and I'm quite pleased with it.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Bliss
Ink:  Su Markers (Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red)

And just a couple of notes here.  I neglected to mention my blogging friend Brenda (Benzi Stampz) who is also on the Design Team of Stampin' B's.  You can find a link to her blog on my sidebar.

And Chrissie of Simply One of a Kind, honored me today with the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you so much Chrissie!  (You can link to her blog from the sidebar too.)

Stampin' Friends are the best!

I think this set will be on my SAB list--I'm so glad to see you you used it here! These CC colors look awesome. You really did a great job of using them. :)

Thanks for the mention, Bonnie...no worry there.

Your card is so pretty and I love the image. You've used the colors really well.
Every time I come to your blog, I see something else I want. You've made me want Bliss, Elizabeth, embossing folders, etc. I have to stay away from your blog. LOL Just kidding.
