Just Believe... Kicked Up a Notch

I was blog surfing last night to get some ideas and was reminded of this card we made at the 2010 Stampin' Up Convention:

So, I used the 2 1/2" Circle Punch to make my template and sponged lines of color on Whisper White cardstock, specifically Pear Pizzaz, Peach Parfait, and Poppy Parade.  Then I stamped the same image from the Just Believe stamp set with Basic Black in the circle of blended colors and ran the piece through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add some depth.  I really like how it turned out!  I stamped the sentiment with Pear Pizzaz and punched it out using the Curly Label Punch, sponging the edges.  I mounted this on a Poppy Parade Modern Label Punched piece that I paper pierced.  I dug out my favorite punch of all time, the Ticket Corner Punch, to trim the corners of the large Poppy Parade layer.  I think this card looks like a beautiful sunset full of inspiration.
