Another Entry, Another Giveaway!!

PHEWWW!!! I barely made it under the wire with this entry for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer challenge. They are due by 10est, and I got mine in by 9ish. I was beginning to wonder if I would get it done in time. I did one last night, because I was unsure if I would be able to stamp today. I had all day to think about something to do if I got home in time, and still didn't have a clue when I got here. I knew that I needed a card for a Bridal Shower on Saturday, so I decided I would make something for it with the MFT set Boho Blossoms. I have to admit, I love this set, but I have a hard time working with it. This is honestly the first card I have made with it that I really love!! I started by stamping the heart in versamark on both Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. I embossed both with white embossing powder and cut them out. I then glued them to pieces of mulberry paper and tore the edges of it. The strip behind them is RR, PP and some paper from the SU prints pack. The base is RR, PP, and WW, which I ran through the cuttlebug with my NEW embossing folder Birds and Swirls. I sponged the edges with PP in to give them some definition. The sentiment was stamped with white craft ink on PP and the hardware is from the SU stylized silver in the new Mini catty. It is a must have if you ask me!! The bow is white organdy which I tied in a square knot, then pink taffeta, white organdy, and then one more of each tied on. I like a big bow, and this is the only way I can get one to work right. I apologize for the bad picture, I must have taken 20 of this card from every angle, but just couldn't get a good shot of it.
By the way, for all you blog stalkers out there(oh come on, you KNOW who you are). I accidentally ended up with two Perfectly Paisley embossing folders. The first person to guess where I was born gets it. Here is a hint: I was not born in the US. I don't expect you to know the city, I just need a country. Good Luck!!

    An absolute winner for sure! Love the softness of it! I guess I'm too late to guess for the folder...I never would have guessed right anyway so I won't sulk.
