...we'll get to that in a second.
For now, let's take a peek at today's card.

The Project:
If you've looked at the March/April issue of Paper Crafts, you may have already seen my winning card on page 82.

For today's card I decided to take the basic idea from my winning card and create a new one with a few small changes. This one goes a bit more toward the trendy navy color, but still uses fabulous papers from Authentique Paper (these are from the Free Bird Series) and that wonderful Itty Bitty from Unity Stamp company.


I did one of my favorite inking techniques to get a fun gradient on the stamped image. I love this look! It is a fabulous way to give your stamped image a little bit of spunk!

I was having fun stamping while I created this card, so I decided to create a coordinating bookmark:


Bookmarks are a great way to use up those scraps you've trimmed from your papers to create your card. It makes for a quick coordinating gift set.

Okay...now here's what you probably came by for...

The Prizes:
I've decided to share a little bit of what came in my WCMD prize package with one lucky winner.
Here's what you can win:


Giveaway includes:
PSA Essentials: Stamper, Alignment Tool, Black Ink, Vintage Snowman Peel & Stick Stamps, and Haunted Shack Peel & Stick Stamps
Clear & Simple Stamps: Circus Fun Stamp Set
American Crafts: Party Animal Stamp Set


But that's not all!
Paper Crafts has offered to send a copy of the March/April 2012 issue to another lucky winner!


{You can see my winning card on page 82.}

Blog comments close (for the giveaways) Monday, February 20th @ 11:59pm (Pacific) and the winners will be announced Wednesday, February 22nd here on my blog.
