MemoryBox Company contest updated! i won!!!!!!!!





happy monday :)
i happened upon a link http://davebrethauer.typepad.com/createx3/2009/03/its-a-huge-memory-box-contest.html to a contest being sponsered by my favorite paper, MemoryBox so wish me luck!!!! there are several different ways to win one of them being to follow the sketch design given and make a card or something with it...well my moms birthday is tomorrow, and i hadnt made her card yet until i saw the sketch then i knew what cricut cuts i would use :) and of course i already knew i was going to use my favorite papers.
for this i used papers from the Sugar Drop Collection. these are my ALL~TIME favorite MB papers. ok ok i say that with almost every new collection pack that comes out but oh boy i really really really just adore this set the most!
i also used my cricut and home accents cartridge. the butterflies are Martha Stewart punches, which if you frequent my blog or the cricut message board you know i also adore all 3 of her butterfly punches. look at those teeny tiny ones on the flowers, are they just precious! i added some mauve pearls to the flowers hand sewing on the happy birthday topper ( which was computer generated) i used my ek success scallop border punch on that. i tore and rolled the paper some and inked with colorbox chalk pad ( chestnut roan ) . thanks you for taking the time to stop by my blog an dany comments and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated :) have a super day!
