Scenic Season, Part 1

This is the first of a few to show you using the new Stampin' Up!
set called "Scenic Season".  I love the simple elegance of this set.

I used SU's Sizzix Bigz Scallop Square die for the base for something a little "different".

I'm not thrilled with it as the base for THIS particular card, but but I'll share it anyways, and try again on a different card - I know it could look great! :)

At first glance, you cannot see the beautiful SHIMMER on this! :(
Click on the should be able to see it closer up...see the light sparkly shimmer?!

I spritzed it with a homemade concoction made from the NEW shimmer paint in Stampin' Up's mini catalog (the red one on your right)!  Sooo fun.  I've been wanting to spray everything I make! lol  Oh, if only you could see this IRL.  It's gorgeous!! 

Maybe next time, I'd make the ribbon at the top into a bow, instead of the plain knot...but other than that...I like it! :)

I used a technique called "masking" to make the moon. :)
