Mix-It-UP! Monday Upgraded SAB Paper

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
The COUNT DOWN for my daughter's
arrival for my Saddle-UP! event is......
23 days and counting!!!!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but I added a couple additional products (found in the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot Light Sunday on the LEFT.......
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the RIGHT......
So for my Mix-It-UP! Monday card ....... I stepped my card up with additional layers and some pretty embossing to the sentiment.
I used my Black Embossing Powder to add a real WOW FACTOR to my sentiment.
And my ribbon received an upgrade too.  I used the same Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine but before I tied it up into a pretty bow.......I added the smallest piece of 5/8" Mini Striped Watermelon Wonder Ribbon.  And I have to say that I think that little touch of ribbon added a pretty look to my card.
I did the same coloring technique to my Sale-a-Bration Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper......
And I added a thin layer of shine to the bee by coating it with some Fine Tip Glue.
The only other upgrade I made to my card was adding some Basic Black cardstock panels ...... And that just gave my card the POP I was looking for. 
So there you have it friends.........
Do you have a favorite?????
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
