Give Thanks and WINNER!!

Happy Friday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! I have a winner to announce from the Wonderful Wilderness Blog Hop, but first, I have a card to enter into a few challenges :) I am trying to get this posted before a major storm hits. We are under a tornado watch until early evening.


All of the paper is from The Paper Studio Uptown Flair stack. I inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I used a Spellbinders border die for the scallop under the lace.


The label is a Spellbinders Label 10. The oval in the front is from George and Basic Shapes. I cut one of the flowers from the background paper for decoration and added crystals to the center of all the flowers.


I have no idea who the flower stamp is from. I bought them a while ago - before I started blogging. Since I keep all my clear stamps in a binder, I threw the package away. I used both Victorian Velvet and Forest Moss distress ink on the stamps. "In everything give thanks" is from K Andrew Designs Scripture Sayings stamp set:


Aren't these sentiments beautiful??!! Click HERE to purchase this set or to see the entire line of stamps!!

For this card, I used the CropStop Becky Fleck pagemap:


I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Love to Crop Spring Fling Challenge
  2. CropStop Challenge #60 - Ovals plus a Becky Fleck sketch
  3. DL.Art Thankful Thursday - Three+ layers, bow, bling
And now for the winner of the Fiskars Home Sweet Home stamp set from the Wonderful Wilderness Blog Hop!! Thank you all so much for stopping by during the two day hop!! I combined the comments from the two days and there were 113 comments. Random.org selected number.........

Ooooh. I LOVE THIS. (And you are making me fall in love with that paper stack.) Your interpretation of the sketch is brilliant. I love the multiple trims, the double bow, the fantastic frame, and the gorgeous colors! My favorite part is the amazing sentiment and gorgeous stamp. Nature and Scripture always pairs so beautifully and you combined them perfectly. This is just lovely, my sweet friend. Elegant, yet fun and full of cheery color. Stunning!
