August Sister Challenge, Day 3 + Giveaway #2

I posted my 200th blog post on Saturday, so to celebrate, I'm doing another giveaway, just like I did for my 100th blog post. The prize will be a set of 9 origami and non-origami cards (see picture might want to enlarge the image to see the sentiments), so if you are interested, please leave a comment on this blog post by SUN, August 22, 11:59 PM EST and I'll pick a random commenter the next day to receive the prize (one comment per person, please). Each card is blank inside, and I'll include an envelope for each one. Good luck!
In exchange for making a wedding card for her and prompt service, my sister offered to trade me a movie ticket. So today, I took off work and we went to see Inception. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had heard from several people that it was a great movie. Yep, it was. It definitely had some twists and turns, which forced me to pay attention so I wouldn't leave the theater going, "What just happened?" The concept about going into someone's dream sound really invasive, but I guess if you want to do some damage or manipulate someone, I suppose the best place to tackle would be the subconscious. The special effects were really cool, but I wouldn't want to see them in 3D or IMAX. All that revolving might cause some motion sickness.

For tonight's card, my sister picked out the word stamps and floral paper, and this is the card that I came up with. I used this as an opportunity to use the Tim Holtz die that I got last week and created my own flower embellishment for this card.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Green
Stamp: Inkadinkado (sentiments), Martha Stewart- Patterns (criss-cross)
Die: Sizzix- Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Flowers (flowers)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch, EK Success Scalloped Circle punch (2 inch)
Brad: Making Memories Brad Value Pack- Chelsea's Place collection
Paper: Making Memories- Chloe's Closet (green floral)
