I won blog candy!

I couldn't believe it, but a couple weeks back, I discovered that I had won some FABULOUS blog candy over at Christine Creations. Let me tell you, this girl does BEAUTIFUL work and I was just thrilled that I won....1) because I never win anything and 2) I've definitely never won any candy despite the many many times I've left comments to try, LOL! Check out what I won HERE. Oh yes....it's good to win! :) Anyway, I wanted to make a Thank You card for Christine for her generosity! I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for inspiration.


I didn't want to use the traditional "thank you" greeting, so I went with "You're the Best" from Verve's Kindred Spirits set. You ARE the best Christine, and thank you so much for the sweet candy. :)


Here's a quick rundown of the deets.
The card base is Very Vanilla and all of the designer paper comes from Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday. I used the Nestabilities Labels 1 die and then stamped the dots within with Papertrey's Vintage Labels in Rose Red ink. The chipboard flower is from Stampin' Up! as well as the leaves. I covered them with Very Vanilla craft and Old Olive craft ink and then glittered the flower with Martha Stewart's fine glitter. I also added some Bamboo Leaf Shimmerz Spritz to the leaves. The buttons are from my stash and the little butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch I bought at Michael's a while back. Hope you enjoyed it! :)

PS. I'll be celebrating something VERY special tomorrow so watch for it...you just may win something fantastic yourself! :)
