BLOG CANDY!!

** $25 BLOG CANDY Gift Certificate Give Away! Scroll down for details!**

First, I have to share this sketch challenge that my fellow i {heart} papers design team member, Kendra threw down for all of us DT members. Here is her sketch:





And here is my interpretation:



The card base is SU's So Saffron, topped with this Anna's Bananas paper that I LOVE. The Easter basket is a stamp in the Spring Fling set that I've used a few times before, and I prettied it up a little with some stickles on the eggs and a cute little pink beaded daisy. I also used my scalloped circle Nestabilities to cut out the semi-circle. I think I said the same thing the last time I used it, but I love that this soft paper has a little black in it. I just think it's such a cool touch.

NOW! On to my BLOG CANDY!

Do you love all of the CUTE i {heart} papers products I've been using? Well, you're in luck! I have a gift certificate up for grabs! Kate (owner) is sponsoring this giveaway for a $10 gift certificate to her store. And because I love you all so much, and appreciate all of your wonderful comments, I'm going to add $15 to it myself, so that means you have the chance to win a $25 i {heart} papers gift certificate!!! WOOOOT!

SO!! How do you win?? Here's the scoop:

1. Visit the i {heart} papers website, and check out all of the fabulous papers, stamps, and embellishments. Then come back here, and leave a comment on this post telling me what you would spend the $25 on if you win (you can change your mind later, and use it however you like, I'm just curious to know what your favorites are!).

2. Spread the word! If you have a blog, please post a link back to this info so as many people as possible can have a shot at this. I'd love to see 100+ entries!

3. Make sure that your comment includes a link back to your blog or an email address or some other way for me to contact you. If you are chosen as the winner, and do not make contact within 36 hours, another winner will be chosen.

Very cute card! If I won I would pick the double ended nestabilities tags and I think the Tea Box Specialty Paper Pad. It was hard to choose--there are so many papers.
