Je t'aime and WINNER!!

Happy Friday, everyone!!  I hope you have fun plans for the Memorial Day weekend!! It's a big one around here with the Indy 500 :)

I have a winner to announce for the K Andrew Designs Pirate Tales & Fish Scales stamp set from the Getting Cricky Summertime Blog Hop and Simply Sunday Disney Challenge!! But first, I have a card to enter into a couple of challenges today.

The base is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle, inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The next layer is a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle, embossed with the Cuttlebug Fleur de Lis embossing folder (though it's a little hard to see in the pic). The Eiffel Tower is from the Summer in Paris cart. The butterfly is from Picturesque, embossed with the Script embossing folder and popped up with foam tape. The flower on the ribbon is from Flower Shoppe, and the heart charm from Hobby Lobby's jewelry section.

The labels are Spellbiners Labels 20, inked with Spun Sugar. The smaller label is stamped with a JustRite Fleur De Lis Label Twenty stamp and attached with foam tape. The tag is a Spellbinders Fancy Tag One. The flowers are from my sweet friend Amy of Love to Crop!! Je t'aime is from K Andrew Designs I Heart You stamp set:

Another GORGEOUS creation, my friend!! :) I just love the color combo and dimension (as usual) -- Really, I think giving you the "silent treatment" until you make something that doesn't leave me speechless really is the way to go!! I mean, how many more times can I get away with saying "this is AWESOME!"??? ;) What a treat to see my flowers on your card!! I feel like such a part of your creation (hopefully, some of that creativity will travel by osmosis to visit with me too!!)... :)
