Surely The Stars Danced and WINNER!!

Happy Saturday!! I am having a hard time getting back into the swing of things after being on vacation. I've been trying to stop by your blogs this week and catch up, so if I haven't been by, I hope to soon. Thank you all who voted for me at Heartfelt Creations (you can still vote HERE). I appreciate it so much!! I have a winner to announce from my Early Christmas giveaway, but first I actually have a project...I can't believe it's been over a week and a half since I've posted a project :(


I used a piece of plastic from a large die as the base of the card. The bottom layer is a Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty Five die cut with black cardstock. The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels twenty five. It was popped up with foam tape. The paper is from my stash.


I used the Tim Holtz Crescent Moon and Stars die to decorate the card. The papers are from my stash. A Spellbinders Labels Twenty Nine die was used for the sentiment, the edges inked with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Paper Wings Productions.


I used another Labels Twenty Five and Labels Twenty Nine for the inside.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Inspired by Tammy Tutterow (her card HERE...I actually purchased the die set after seeing her card!)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Use Rubber or Clear Stamp
Little Scrap Pieces - Fun Friday Anything Goes
DL.Art - October Anything Goes Linky
Craft It Up & Link It Up #16 - Anything With a Sentiment
Jo's Scrap Shack - Favorite Technique (Spellbinders)
Sunday Funday #14 - Anything Goes
Just B Creative Crazy - October Linky

And now for the winner of my Early Christmas Giveaway!! Thank you all who entered!! It took longer that I thought to pick a winner. I printed out all the comments from the Giveaway post, as well as the ones from the posts while I was gone, making sure to add extra entries for the additional chances to win. After they were all cut out and put into a box, I chose one name out. And the winner is.......................................................................................

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, this card is completely unique and completely YOU! (Which means innately amazing.) The clear base makes it beyond ethereal.. that was pure genius. The lacy background makes me think of a gentle swirling nighttime breeze. :o) I LOVE the moon and stars! They look fantastic. I had never seen that sentiment before.. what a glorious way to wish someone a happy birthday. Marvelous creation as always, my dear Lisa! It is a treasure. I'm sending you oodles of sparkly thoughts this weekend! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
