Good morning! I have been super busy playing with new releases for a couple of different design teams (Can't WAIT to share! LOTS of fun stuff coming!) - but I have had my eye on a few challenges that I wanted to play along with - one of which was Lil' Inker's 3rd Birthday Challenge! So...I took a few minutes last night to make this:
Here is the inspiration photo - I used the balloons and rainbow theme as my inspiration, but took it a little more vintage feeling in my card.
I used my Lil' Inker's Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a window out of the background paper, attached the outer part flat on my cardbase, and then attached the center part popped up with foam adhesive.
I also cut a plain rectangle, and stamped one of the sweet Sugar Kissed Cottage images called "Surprise" on it in black ink - just to keep it simple. I added a sentiment from Rainbows & Clouds Sentiment Stamp set.
I used some distress ink around the edges, then attached it directly to my popped up center panel, and finished off with a bow tied around the top with Baker's Twine, leaving the tails nice and long!
And...now what you have been waiting for! I picked a winner from my Post 1,001 and Giveaway - using Random.org (because I could NEVER actually choose!)
Which means the lucky winner is:
Big congrats Jessica!!! Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address, and choice of stamp from either Neat and Tangled or My Craft Spot - and I will get that ordered for you!
And thanks to everyone who left comments! I so enjoyed reading all of the sets from both companies that you loved!
Have a great day everyone!!!
