Hey All! We have a winner of my set of Hummingbird note cards from the last post. Thanks so much for the wonderful tips you all left! I expected no less from all you talented people! Some of them I'm adopting right away! Also, thanks so much for the nice comments about the cards. Speaking of cards. . .today's post (I know, you want to know the winner. . .if you can't wait and savor the moment, scroll down to the bottom and take a look to see if it is you!) LOL Now, for those of you who are going to wait, back to today's post. This card was made with another stamp set from Artful Inkables. This one is from their Bloomin' Beauties set. Take a look at the card:
I just love these stamps! I colored the flowers with colored pencils and cut each one out. I stamped the vine part in Colorbox Canary multiple times in opposite directions, cut them out and pieced them together. I then wove the vine thingies into the trellis, then mounted the flowers on with foam mounting squares for depth. The trellis thingies are a border die cut from my Cuttlebug as is the embossed background which I thought went perfect with this. Ever since I got this Cuttlebug die, I kept thinking it looked like a trellis. Then when I got this stamp set I thought the two would be perfect together. A detailed shot is below:
The stamp set came with the sentiment "Bloom where you're planted", but it was a bit small for this size card. Besides, I have a friend that has a birthday coming up soon, so I thought this would make a good birthday card for her.
So, there you have it. Now, shall I announce the winner? OK, OK! For Those of you who waited, the list is below. Remember, the winner was the one who came out 13Th on the list as determined by Random.org. There were a couple of you who commented after the deadline date, so I'm sorry that I did not include you on the draw. There were also a couple of anonymous comments who did not leave a name, so I could not put them in for the draw. So, here is the list:
