The Winnah!

Just a quick post today, because I am overwhelmed with workshop and class prep, and swaps to prepare for Convention (getting sooo close!). 

I wanted to post the results of my draw for a free stamp set.  This contest was posted on both my blog and on my Facebook business page.  The winner of a free stamp set, World Treasures, is Rachel Bohn.  Please email me, Rachel with your address and we can arrange delivery.

I also wanted to show you a card I created for a dear couple whose car was totalled just as they were turning left to come to church Sunday morning.  Miraculously, they are mostly unharmed, except for soreness and trauma, even though their airbags deployed and the other car, who was speeding up to beat a red light, flipped over. (The driver of that vehicle was also unhurt!) I think I will be using this card or a version of it as the last of my Technique Class cards next Wednesday!

I used a subdued palette of Chocolate Chip, River Rock and Pink Pirouette along with Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiment panel is background stamped with En Francais and the water marks from French Foliage.  The sentiment itself is from the Trust God set.  The flower on the Pink Pirouette is stamped in Early Espresso ink and sponged with Pretty in Pink.  It is from the Everything Eleanor stamp set. 

The flagged sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Everything was sponged in Soft Suede and the edges distressed.  I added some button-like brads from Vintage Trinkets.  I decided against adding a ribbon to keep it from being too cluttered but there are definitely things I could change to bump it up a bit to the next level.

Also, Stampin' Up has a promotion for July to give you a "Reason to Smile".

Have a great Wednesday, and congratulations again to Rachel Bohn for winning the Blog Candy!
