This stamp set, item number 155282, Approaching Perfection is my “sleeper pic” from the new Sale-A- Bration Catalog. I recently chose it as a free pick with my order because I had already received most of the other free items available. I opened it this past week and boy was I surprised. I loved the sentiments included and the two graphics included opened up my creativity.

I will include some photos of the cards I created. I ran across some scraps of retired DSP and, since I have been trying to use those up from my stash I went with a yellow striped background.

This first one I used the graphic elements to create a background and used some of my favorite Stampin Up colors; flirty flamingo, highland heather, mint macaron,and so saffron. The Happy Birthday sentiment made a perfect banner!

On the above card I used the beautiful sunflower from Celebrate Sunflowers. I guess I was thinking yellow this day.

The remaining cards in this post feature the sentiments primarily because I think they make such a great statement.

***NOTICE*** Time is limited for the Sale -A-Bration items. You only have until Feb 28th to place your order on my site: suestapp.stampinup.net
