It's time for Freestyle Fridays, and I am so excited to share this card!  The mission that Julie issued for me last week was to create a "thank you" card using several punches and Wisteria Wonder, one of Stampin' Up!'s newest "In Color" colors.  For some reason, this new color hasn't been one that's excited me, but I really like the color combination in the floral designer paper that I used ("Berry Blossoms" collection).  Truth be told, if you took away the designer paper, this card would lose its drama!  To complete my mission (and this card), I used the following Stampin' Up! products:
Stamp Sets:  Petite Pairs and Pennant Parade
Card Stock:  Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink:  Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black
Accessories: Stampin' Sponge, pearl jewels, ruffled ribbon, Baker's twine, button, "Berry Blossoms" designer paper
Punches: 5-Petal Flower, Lace Ribbon Border, Petite Pennants Builder, Round Tab, Spiral, which appears to have retired recently (big mistake, SU!), and Scallop Edge Border
Thank you, Julie, for presenting another fun mission!  Sometimes the missions are quite challenging but, at the same time, they set boundaries that help me focus on my options.  I would encourage anyone reading this post to try one of Julie's missions sometime--they're really a LOT of fun!  Have a great weekend, and visit me again on Monday for my "snappy Monday" project.
