Today is the first contest of the 2011 Papertrey Anniversary festivities, and, boy, is it a big one! The design team has featured their favorite projects of this past year, and one very, very, very lucky person will win the Ultimate Card Kit -- Everything needed to create all of those projects. (Give me a moment to catch my breath. It's really an unbelievable prize.)
One way to win is to post/ re-post my favorite project of the year. Fortunately, I have a really small blog. (Okay, a little shameful, really.) But choosing my favorite was really easy. This Beautiful Blooms II card is hands-down my favorite card of this year. I love everything on this card -- the bold colors, the felt flower, the fillable frame, the polka-dotted black and white ribbon... It just screams "happy" to me.
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, True black, (The scallop was punched from the cover of the Bitty Dots paper pack)
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy, Spring Moss, Versafine Black
Felt: Hawaiian Shores
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Fillable Frames 4
Dies: Those wonderful coordinating dies for the 2 stamp sets above!
Ribbon: Basic Grey (I think)
Button: PTI White/Cream (colored with a Sharpie -- must resist the Copics!)
Thanks so much for looking!
