World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop!

Hi all!  I’m so thrilled to be participating in this World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop!  If you’ve been following the links, you should have come here from Donna’s blog.  If you just happened upon my blog, please go back to the Paper Crafts blog for a full list of blogs on this fun hop!

Enough talk!  Here’s the card that won me a spot in the Love category:

WCMD Winner

I used the Paper Smooches set Bee Mine and a Stampers Anonymous Honeycomb stencil.   I sponged Wild Honey and Antique Linen Distress Inks through the stencil for the background. 

Next I stamped the bees on white cardstock and vellum.  I colored the cardstock versions with Copics, then cut out both versions, leaving the wings off of the cardstock versions.  I glued the cardstock bodies over the vellum versions and attached them to the card base with foam tape, slightly overlapping their wings.  Finally I stamped the sentiments on the sides of the bees.

I wanted to share a little of my prize package with one of you, so here’s a pic of the goodies you could win from my blog:

There are a bunch of stamps, a few dies and some other miscellaneous items.  To enter to win, please leave a comment for me about anything you’d like!  Unfortunately this giveaway is only for people in the US, so please include which state you’re in.  This giveaway is open until December 10th, 11:59 PM Hawaii time.  I’ll announce the winner shortly after that.

Now it’s time for you to hop over to Mandy's blog, but before you go, don’t forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win my prize package!
