Can you believe, there is just under 3 weeks left of the Sale-a-bration promotion remaining. This year is flying by, so if you've been sitting on the fence wondering which of the free products to get, then let the CASE-ing the Catty Crew help you out with more inspiration from the Sale-a-bration catalogue samples. An order of $90 or more (before shipping) entitles you to choose one of the many fabulous Level 1 products and a $180 or more order (before shipping) entitles you to choose two Level 1 products or one of the Level 2 products. Don't forget the extra Sale-a-bration products that were released in mid-February; you can see them here.

This week, I'm taking my inspiration from the card above that uses the 'Amazing You' stamp set, which is a Level 1 option. It has a great set of greetings to mix and match, plus the sweet flower and sunburst images. You can see it below, in case you're wondering what it looks like.
It is nice by itself, but when you pair it with the 'Celebrate You' Thinlits dies, magic happens! The dies are a Level 2 option, but the great news is that they will be available in the new Annual Catalogue starting in June 2018. So, if you can't stretch to get the dies, then I recommend you choose the 'Amazing You' stamp set and purchase the dies in June. The combination of the words and dies gives you lots of options for congratulatory cards.
So this is my card and you can see I have taken the layout from the sample and turned it into a landscape orientation, so I had room for my 'celebrate' die cut as well as the flower. I started by cutting a piece of thick Whisper White card stock slightly larger than the 'celebrate' die and used my sponge daubers to create a soft ombre style colour graduation with Soft Sky, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay ink pads. Next up I stamped the flower from 'Amazing You' twice in Memento 'London Fog' ink and coloured them with the Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends. I fussy cut the centre from one flower and popped it up on the base. Once I assembled the white strip I could determine the positioning for the sunburst which was heat embossed in silver and the 'lets', which was stamped in Bermuda Bay (I think it should have been a bit further to the right though).
I added a strip of silver glimmer under the white panel and tied some white Baker's Twine around the Pool Party panel, with the bow finishing under the flower. I tucked some greenery that was die cut with the 'Sweet Cake' Framelits under the flower and added a clear Faceted Gem in the centre. The Pool Party panel was adhered to the Whisper White card base and lastly, the silver foil die cut 'you' was adhered at the bottom with a row of rhinestones to finish.
For the inside, I stamped part of the flower image in the top right corner of the writing panel and then added the Bermuda Bay 'stars' washi at the base and topped it with a narrow strip of silver glimmer. The finished panel was layered onto a Pink Pirouette mat and adhered to the inside of the card.
