One 15 Minute Project ='s Two Challenge Entries. Oh! And We Have A Winner!

Pin It

Today's card project was created for Poetic Artistry's "Mojo Monday" sketch challenge. Click HERE to see the deets and the sketch I followed. After the card was photographed, I realized it also qualifies for the Caardvark's "Black/White & One" challenge. Kewl!

I love this neat stamp from Diva Impressions; it's perfect for soooo many different kinds of projects ... and you can also use it as a stand-alone image as I've done here.

I used two vintage (1950's) French vocabulary cards (available HERE), two handmade butterflies from Distinctions in Nature, and patterned card stock from Crate Paper.

Finally, I sponged all the edges with fluid chalk ink ... easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!!

Now, on to the fun stuff: The winner of the 10,000 hits blog candy is Comment #55 "... This is cool! I just getting started and this stuff is beautiful!" Congratulations, Stacy! I'll be contacting you via email for your mailing address. And many thanks to all of you who entered.

But wait! I'll be posting MORE blog candy on Friday! This time, you'll be commenting to win a lot of four, gorgeous, vintage-inspired, deeply etched, unmounted red rubber stamps! Head on over to Diva Impressions now to see all of the beautiful stamps Beth has to offer ... four of them will be up for grabs on Friday! ENABLER ALERT: I'm warnin' you now, you're gonna fall in love with these images!

Be sure to stop back on Friday to have a chance to win some uber-kewl rubber stamps! As always, international visitors are welcome to join in.

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!

I recently noticed that you have the "I design for" and I thought, I may have missed it before. Beautiful work!

They have some bootiful stamps. May have to put them in my cart someday.
