Stars Galore and......

A Giveaway!!

But first, my card! I love this Superstar set, as soon as I saw it at Scraptivity, I knew I had to have it, there's just somethng about stars, I am obsessed with them! Also, I was really liking this week's colour challenge, so I used those 5 colours (rust, saffron, olive, chocolate, and caribbean). They are very fun, earthy, yet fresh colours. The card has a bit of a twist. I wanted a rounded card front with some of the inside stamping peeking out. I traced a large round object I found in my craft space (a lid of a hat box, if you must know!) I love making backgrounds with the clear stamps words. Even with my stamp-a-ma-jig, I would NEVER attempt this with wood mounted rubber stamps, talk about a way to drive yourself insane. The congratulations is one of the sentiments from the Hero Arts messages set.


Now onto the giveaway, right!! Alright, I've got a "naked", ready to be covered in whatever way you deem fit, DVD tin. Inside the tin will be all sorts of goodies, including some MM page pebbles, some American Crafts ribbon, and assorted papers from DCWV Far East and Once Upon a Time mat stacks, and maybe some other items that I find between Monday and now. To be eligible for the giveaway, please post your comment on this post. Sometime Monday night, let's say 9PM CT, I will randomly choose one lucky winner and post the name shortly thereafter. Sounds good? I look forward to hearing from you all! Here's a glimpse of the items up for grabs.
