Sneak Peek and Happy Friday

Hello there!  How are you guys today?  This is another week that flew by!  Is that just what happens as you get older?  My goodness!  Seems like time has a way of speeding up.  Well, today, I've got a little sneak peek for you - this is a card I made with a few goodies from the new SU! catty that will be available very soon.  July 1st in fact! 
I love the new DSP called Newsprint - it has a bunch of fun black and white printed papers - from maps, to musical sheets, to old advertisements...lots of awesome backgrounds to choose from to add character to your projects!  Here, I used the musical sheets for the background and punched out my leaves on the vintage map sheets.  Here's a look at the full card for you:

I was inspired to create my flower from Lisa Johnson's poppy flower tutorial.  I used SU!'s new larger scallop circle punch and punched 2 flowers, then layered it with the smaller scallop circle for the center flower.  For my black flower center, I followed Lisa's method of fraying black grosgrain ribbon to create that fuzzy center look.  Pretty fun!  Now, how about that sentiment?  So perfect for the look I was going for!  It's from the new Level 3 Hostess set called Occasional Quotes, which has a fantastic collection of sentiments in a variety of fun fonts.  I layered my sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock, which was die cut from the Lots of Tags Sizzlit.  Then I layered that piece from one of the tag pieces on the Matchbox Bigz XL die.  I topped it off with a touch of bling and used 2 rhinestone brads from the pretties kit.  Did you see I used the pretty 1/8" taffeta ribbon too?  I just LOVE that ribbon - it dresses up my 5/8" black grosgrain ribbon quite nicely, don't you think? Viola!  That's it!  I basically described the entire card, but here's the recipe in an easy to read format:
