Hello there! Happy Saturday to you:) This is another card we'll be making at Card Night on Thurdsay. It features all the brand new 2014-2016 In Colors. I'd like to introduce you to Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow & Blackberry Bliss. Lost lagoon is my favorite as it's a good substitute for Baja Breeze, which I still grieve over. I started with a Crumb Cake base and added a layer of Lost Lagoon Cardstock on top.

I love how the new In Colors lend themselves perfectly for masculine cards, so that's where I was going with this~although it would work perfectly for anyone:) I wasn't sure if the doily was a little too feminine. I decided to ink it up with Hello Honey using a Brayer to man it up a bit. I made the call that it works. Who says doilies are just for goilies?. I adhered the doily to the base with SNAIL and wrapped a piece of Tangelo Twist Stitched Satin Ribbon on top and secured it to the back with SNAIL. I stamped the polka dot image in Lost Lagoon ink by just lining the stamp up along the ribbon. I added a piece of Epic Day Washi Tape on top and adhered the Lagoon piece to the base.

I used the Perfect Pennants stamps/Framelits Bundle for the sentiment and cut it out with the Big Shot. I wrapped a piece of  Summer Starfriut Thick Baker's Twine around the pennant~which I just now realized is gone, but one of the other colored Baker's Twine could be substituted or there's always the old faithful Linen Thread:) I attached the pennant with Dimensionals. I used the Circle Card Thinlits to cut out the star in Mossy Meadow. The new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack would have been easier, but I don't have it...yet:) I added a fun Mini Metallic Clothespin to the star and attached the clothespin with a couple of Glue Dots. I finished it off by sprinkling a few 'Poorman Candy Dots' around. I simply used the Cupcake Builder Punch to pop out the circles and attached them with rolled up Glue Dots.
