It is another {ippity} Monday Hip Hop!! (And a SALE!)

Hi Everyone!
(Make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post for my Tax Day Relief Sale! ;) )

 Today is another {ippity} Hip Hop and this week the challenge added to our month long challenges was a color inspiration. The colors were ivory,taupe,a blue turquoise and a deep red.
I created a CAS Birthday card.

I used the {ippity} set "Regal Greetings" for the Chandelier,and the sentiment is from "Just wanted to Say". For the main image I stamped it twice onto Gina K pure luxury ivory card stock and embossed it 3 times in clear embossing powder to give it a glossy texture. Then I cut out one of the images and used thin adhesive squares from Zva to pop it up just a little for dimension. The red tear drop crystals and the square crystals in the corners were actually clear,but I colored them with a deep red copic marker!

I cut the main image out using the new Fleur de lis rectangle die from nestabilities and then matted that onto a turquoise blue card stock (also from GinaK) that had been cut out with a rectangle nestabilitie.
I used 2 colors of ribbon taupe and a deep red,and then the sentiment is stamped with pumice stone from ranger distress inks which is a kind of a taupe color,and then I did use clear embossing powder as well to help it to stand out a little better. :)
The main image is also elevated just slightly using the thin foam squares from Zva for dimension as well.

I hope that you like it! Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Remember today is the last day to mail those taxes in!!

You know I think I will run a little  sale today,because it is tax day,and some of us could use a break right about now!! ;)
