I Won!

The blog Sheetload of Cards had a sketch contest. I submitted this card and won 2nd place! I was so excited! I won a stamp set, a pad of paper, and some fibers. But the real 'win' for me was the honor of having my card chosen for 2nd place. If you've never visited the Sheetload of Cards blog before, I highly recommend it. You can find it here: http:// Twice a month they give you a sketch you can download where you can make a bunch of cards out of one sheet of paper.
Now onto the details of this card. The stamp set is Inkadinkado "Birds Galore". I stamped the main image in Stampin Up! 'Basic Black', then colored it with a versamarker, sprinkled clear embossing powder on it, heated it with a heat gun and then cut it out and mounted it up on the card with dimensionals. The three panels of birds is actually one stamp. I stamped the image and cut into squares. The background panel is the cuttlebug embossing folder 'Swiss Dots' and I sponged the edges with chalk. The paper is 'Blush Blossom" by Stampin Up! I added a $1.00 a spool ribbon from Michaels and adhesive pearls. The sentiment is from the stamp set "Happy Harmony" from Stampin Up!
Have a great day!
