{Summer Birthday and A Blog Giveaway!!}

HA1

Hello! Today I am here to show you a card I created for a couple of challenges,  the June Hero Arts Contest, and this weeks Color Q Challenge# 140.  I used A Muse Studio and Fresh Ink Pigment ink pads along with the Hero Arts set "Many Dots", and "Happiness Messages".  Everything on my card is stamped except for the large lime-ade polka dot circle in the middle. That is from the Dots and Stripes collection from Echo Park.

I finished off my card with  machine stitching, and I ran the entire card base through my Cuttlebug using the PTI Linen/Canvas Impression plate. Here is the sketch I used:


                                                                And here is my color inspiration:


  Now what was that about a blog giveaway!? Well, no-one ever claimed my BIG blog prize from a month or two ago, and this time I wanted everyone to be able to have a chance to win so I have the following Fresh Ink pigment ink pads by Impress Rubber Stamps to give away to 1 lucky winner!

Gorgeous take on the HA sketch challenge. I also made a card for this particular sketch, but mine is not nearly as beautiful as yours! LOVE the colors and STAMPING( it is obvious since you are the Stamping Royalty!!).
