Sale-A-Bration 2013 Countdown: Week 1 - Madison Avenue Card

I have been lucky enough to meet some friendly & very creative ladies as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, not just team members, or customers but also long distance blog visitors & demonstrators as well.   As a demonstrator we have access to the Stampin' Connection forum that enables us to talk and share ideas with other demonstrators all over the world.  I met Lisa from Michigan, USA recently on Stampin' Connection.   Her recent blog post using the Madison Avenue stamp set (click her name above to see her card) from Sale-A-Bration 2013 has inspired me to get my own set out and try to create something worthy of your eyes.

I must say I have found this stamp set a bit of a challenge & have looked at it sheepishly of late, often pushing it to the side in favour of all the other sets on offer during saleabration.  Today, after creating not one, but 20 of these cards, we have become good friends this Madison Avenue stamp set & I.

I did find it hard to photograph this card.  The colour I used on the base is actually Summer Starfruit, however in these photos it is coming up a mustard looking colour.  

Stamp Sets:  Madison Avenue(Sale-A-Bration).
Paper:  Naturals Ivory Cardstock, Summer Starfruit, Pool Party, Sycamore Street DSP.
Ink: Summer Starfruit, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party.
Cool Tools: Pool Party Sycamore Street Ribbon ( Sale-A-Bration), Fancy Fan embossing folder.
