Happy Friday!  I hope all is well, with you.  Me, I'm putting the finishing touches of another party.  This one is for my daughter and her husband.  She is expecting thier fourth child, and we wanted to throw them a party.  So, this time, it's a Surprise Baby Reveal Shower.  We all know the sex of their baby, but they don't!  So, when they arrive to the shower, they will find out if they are having another boy or another girl.  How fun, huh?  And since it's a surprise, I don't have the help of my daughter.  So, I'm doing everything myself.  This shower is a typical 'Tara and Max' party . . . the whole family is invited.  So, these parties are 70/+ folks attending.  That translates to alot of fun to cook, cakes to bake, decorations to make, and numberous invitations, and thank you cards.
Even though I'm struggling with my time management, I did take a break, and change my focus to make a card.  A girlfriend is celebrating a birthday, so I wanted to make her something special.  Maria, from SKetch Frenzy Friday has a wonderfully creative sketch for you to try.  Here is her sketch:

Here is my card:

I used some of the new DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I just love the look of Calypso Coral and Pool Party together.  And the bits of Island Indigo and Summer Starfruit, really make the pool party pop!
I cut my own tag, and did some collage stamping.   I then added some trinkets and a hand made flower.    I used the bloomin' marvelous stamp set to create the flower.  I also added a button from the sycamore street collection.  The mini bottle cap adds a metallic shine.
I hope you get a chance to play along with us @ SFF.  We would love to see what you create!
