Latisha Yoast came up with a great idea to share our new/unused crafty supplies--to have a blog hop and give the supplies away to people hopping. I love this idea!
I'm so thankful for the blogging community. I know everyone is busy, and it means a lot to me that people take the time to stop by. I wanted to do the giveaways as a thank you!
Here is a card I made for the new year:
This month, Winnie & Walter is celebrating their first anniversary, and they're hosting a month-long birthday bash. Part of the celebration includes several challenges (they'll go live at 7am CT 1/1). I'm joining in the fun and playing along with Laura's challenge. If you get a chance, check them out (the prizes are huge!).
For my card, I used The Big, the Bold, and the Extras stamp set and matching cut files from Winnie & Walter. I did some two- and three-step stamping for the flowers and layered them over some Maggie Holmes vellum flowers. The leaves were die-cut using the cutting files. I was very inspired by THIS gorgeous card.
Here's a close-up:
