25th Anniversary RemARKable Blog Tour - Best of Sale-A-Bration!

Welcome to the last installment of the RemARKable Best of Blog Tour. It's hard to believe that the whole year of the "Best of" has come to a close.  All along I was wondering how Stampin' Up! would wrap it up.  Of course, Sale-A-Bration is the biggest promotion of the year, and those exclusive Sale-A-Bration stamp sets have always been a treat. So what better way to end this series than with a Best of Sale-a-Bration set!

Item 134393

Here is what I created for this tour:

I used coordinating markers to ink the stamp set.  I added a rhinestone in the center of the flower to give it a little bling.

I alsolutely love the Sale-a-Bration designer paper this year!  There are so many exciting colors and patterns to choose from in one single pack of designer paper.  As I was playing with it, inspiration came to me from a card sketch.  Thus, this card was born!

Next up on the RemARKable Blog Tour is Tamra Davis.  Click on the image below or go to to see what wonderful projects Tamra has created for you to see.
