Good Monday morning to you all! Did everyone have a good weekend? I had a great weekend, I spent most of it making cards and invitations. I have some great news for me and for you! I was featured on My Crafty Picks this week! You can see my original post here and the Crafty Picks Post here. Thank you very much Tiffany! Now for the good news for you, I’m giving away a little blog candy!! I have a brand new mounted Papaya Collage Wood Mount set to give away to one of my wonderful blog readers.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post between now and Wednesday. I will announce the winner, which will be selected at random on Friday morning and send you your set right away. As an added bonus anyone that places an order through me will be entered twice! Plus you will be eligible for JK Cards Anchor Rewards. Now on to today’s post.

Today’s card is for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary. This week they have given us this sketch…

I used a little creative license and moved things around a bit because I wanted to use the new World Treasures Stamp Set. The peacock from the World Treasures Stamp Set is stamped in Gumball Green and again in Midnight Muse. I used my therapeutic Paper Snips to cut them out and layered then on top of one another. The image across the top, from the same set, is stamped in Midnight Muse and I used the new Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies for the “pinked” edge along the top. Behind the peacock is a piece of Daffodil Delight Card Stock that I embossed with the new Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Across the bottom is a piece of Floral District Designer Series Paper and they are all adhered to the base which is Gumball Green. The greeting, also from the World Treasures Stamp Set, is stamped in Midnight Muse and cut out with the Apothecary Accents Edgelits Dies.The peacock and the greeting are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I hope you enjoyed today’s card and don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered to win a Papaya Collage Wood Mount Stamp Set form the new 2012-2013 Catalog!
