Migrain yesterday - back today!

I had all intentions of posting here yesterday, but I had a very bad migrain and I had 2 sessions of club yesterday, so I knew something had to give so that I could be on top of my game for my club members. So unfortunately no posting to my blog happened yesterday. But I'm much better today, the headache is gone, but I still have what I call "migrain hangover".
Anyway enough about that, onto the goods!
We had stamp club yesterday and it was so much fun! We had a great time and made 2 really fun cards. One you already saw the other day (the one with the birthday presents) where they learned 3 fun easy techniques. The other one they learned 2 really fun techniques. I actually got the idea for this card from a website designed only for stampin up demonstrators, it's kind of like facebook but ALL STAMPIN UP can you imagine! Just another great reason to become a demonstrator! I unfortunately don't have a link to a website where you can see her work. I'm not even sure if she has one, but I can tell you that her name is Angela Dell'Erba.
I changed the card a little bit to suit my needs but the idea is still the same.
I think the club ladies loved this card, they where all ooohing and ahhhing over this one.
We used the sale-a-bration punch scallop trim boarder punch (free with a $50.00 order) as well as whimsical words also a sale-a-bration product that can be earned with an order of $50.00!
Don't you just love those flowers?

We used rhinestone brads in the center of the flowes to give it that extra "pop".

Here's a close up of the flowers, can you see the beautiful shimmer on these babies? These things sparkle in real life! We used a mixture of rubbing alcohol and shimmer paint to get this beautiful affect!
Do you know how to make leaves without having to cut them out by hand? My club ladies learned Monday night exactly how to do that.
Maybe I'll do a tutorial later this week to show you how easy and fun it is to make these leaves.
