I saw this card by mum_of_2_2 on SCS and had to CASE it!  I love the colors and how she spolighted that sweet dancing bear from Under the Big Top stamp set.  The sentiment is from a retired set.  A Texturz plate was used to emboss the Perfect Plum card stock.  Elegant Eggplant, Blushing Bride, and Whisper White card stock were also used.  The dancing bear was colored with Watercolor Wonder crayons on watercolor paper.  Can you see the Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the folds of her tutu?

This stamp set, You're My Type, in the new Occasions mini catalog is one I really like.  It may not seem so versatile at first glance, but I see lots of possibilities with it.  This card is made with Pool Party and Island Indigo card stock, two of the current In Colors from Stampin' Up.  Lucky Limeade Classic ink, another In Color, was used to create the Rolling Marble background.  The heart was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder then punched with the Heart to Heart punch.
