Time to reveal day 2 of my challenge to use the same dsp & stamp set as yesterday but stepped up a bit.  Remember that tomorrow will be the final stepped up version of the card.

This card is also quick to make.  Basically I made 3 changes from the card yesterday.  Notice the change of orientation to portrait from landscape.  Also, the background is embossed with the Alphabet Press from Stampin' Up!. Finally, I switched up the color palette on the sentiment stamped with Label Something.

Rhinestones add a bit of bling to the label which is placed on the dsp banners.

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator , we have the opportunity to preorder a month before a catalog is available to the public.  So, that means that I can order July 1st from the soon to be released Holiday Mini.  Consequently, I have spent a good deal of time today making my wishlist.  I have been back and forth about what to order.  First I decide to focus on Halloween and Thanksgiving.  But, then I see all the wonderful Christmas merchandise and I am lured to it.  Because I am having a tough time making a decision, I decided to ask you for your help. Please tell me what type of sneak peek samples you would like to see on my blog during the month of July.  Do you want fall holidays or Christmas?  Just leave me a comment with your choice.
