Go To Greetings with the Pretty Pop Ups Dies for #fms579

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Jen T's sketch over @ Freshly Made Sketches .  When I saw this terrific sketch I knew I had to use the oval from the retiring Pretty Pop-Ups Dies,#159179.   Also I'm inspired by the new Colour Refesh.  Stampin' UP!® is bringing back a few colours and adding in some new ones to their Colour Collection.  Today's card features three returning faves, Pretty Peacock, Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst.

Yes, my mom would call me a 'Pack Rat' as i still have a few pieces of this cardstock left and Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blends, but when you love a colour you keep it - right?

Please click the hyperlink above or the image below to visit the #fms 579 challenge and enjoy the inspiration, then give this versatile sketch a try.  :)

***  The Trix  ***

*  Create peak-a-boo colour by layering the ovals *

*  The Pretty Pop-Ups Dies, do not cut out the oval shape, so I used the retired Stitched Shapes Framelits™ Dies, but you could easily fussy cut the shape out too.  Pop up the cut shapes within the oval using the Take Your Pick Tool™, #144107.  

*  Cut a second oval with Berry Burst then adhere the Basic White oval to the Berry Burst oval, taking care to add dabs of glue around the popped up pieces.

*  Adhere the ovals to the card base with dimensionals and add in a Lemon Lime Twist butterfly from the die set.  ***Trix, fussy cut the butterfly with paper snips to cut it out completely and adhere with glue.

*  Stamp the greeting from the Go To Greetings Stamp Set,#158763 with Versamark and emboss with White Embossing Powder, #155554.  Adhere with dimensionals.  Embellish with Rhinestone Basic Jewels, #144220 coloured with a Pretty Peacock Stampin' blends Marker.
