As promised, I made a hand-stamped card for the winner. I started with this great Viva la Verve sketch.
I really like this layout. It's such a simple design, yet it's so pretty.
My card looks a little washed out--sorry. I'm trying some new photo editing and photo taking techniques and I'm still working out the kinks.
I used the International Bazaar DSP and paired it with the Blooming with Kindness stamp set. I stamped the sentiment, cut it out with a circle nestability, and then sponged around the edges before I removed the nestability. I finished it off by adding a scalloped layer behind it and some paper-piercing below the sentiment. I attached it to the card using dimensionals.
This is definitely a layout I will be using again. A simple change of paper and sentiment and it would make a beautiful card for any occasion.
I added some ribbon and some paper to the inside of my card to finish it off. I hope you enjoy your card Jo. Thanks for supporting me and thanks for stopping by!
