Giveaway Winner

Bad news: Still felt gross today...stayed home from work. :(

Good news: Thanks to everyone that stopped by to participate! I was so happy to see that there were so many of you. has randomly selected the winner of the set of 6 origami cards. The winner is (::drum roll::) comment #11- Carapace! Congratulations! I've got your mailing information, so I'll send your package out soon. Not to worry, non-winners, I will definitely have more giveaways in the future.

While watching Kristina Werner's Make a Card Monday video today, I saw that she challenged fellow cardmakers to do a one-layer card, i.e. just using stamps. What a toughie because I love using embellishments! I cut some strips of scrap cardstock (1 inch width) and masked off the top, left and ride side of the card. Then I broke out some border stamps and layered them, one on top of another with different colored chalk inks. I stamped the sentiment and outlined the colored portion of the card. I would have used a brown marker, but I don't own one so I used black instead.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Prussian Blue, Dark Peony, Warm Green, Bisque, Charcoal
Stamp: Martha Stewart- Patterns (top 2 borders), Hot Off The Press- Delicate Patterns (bottom 2 borders), Fiskars- Just Between Friends (sentiment)
Other: Sharpie ultra fine tip marker
