Sale-a-bration {BLISS!}

Hello there!  Did you know that Sale-a-bration will be coming to an end next Thursday, March 31st?  Well, it's true!  This is your last week to scoop up any of the exclusive Sale-a-bration sets or take advantage of the free product(s) you can get when you order $50 or more of your fave Stampin'Up! goodies.  Today's share is a card I made with the pretty Bliss set.  I love the flourish from this set, not to mention the fancy sentiment, too.  Here's a look at my full card:
It's my first time using the cork with the dies, so that was pretty fun, too.  It's funny - I've had the cork sheets for a while now and have had the intention of using them, but you know how that goes, right?  At least for me, sometimes I've got all these ideas I want to try out and only have time for making one or 2 of them.  I'm glad I finally did use the cork with the butterfly stamp - so fun!  Now that I've busted open the package, you'll probably see more projects using these cool cork sheets!  Here's a closer look at the butterfly - the cork sheets are about 1/8" thick and they go through the Big Shot suprisingly easily!
I've also been getting a lot of use with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  I think it adds so much to the project - makes the paper look like it's woven upholstery - it's a great faux look!  Since we're talking about the background, I really love making patterns with that flourish.  The clear mount stamps make background patterns such a breeze!  Here's the recipe for you:
