CutCardStock.com winner and a CPS card

Remember my post the other day about the Blog Hop and the paper give away from CutCardStock.com?
Today was the day to pick that winner from my blog - DRUM ROLL PLEASE.......
Red Neck Leprechaun - Suzanne
Please email me Suzanne and CutCardStock.com will get your wonderful package off to you.

I have some personal exciting news too!!! I found out my card that I posted here a couple days ago was selected by 2 Sketches 4 You are the Card of the Week! LOVE good news

I wanted to share with you my card for Card Positioning Systems card for this week. It is sketch #103.
The yellow for the card base is from CutCardStock.com and it is a WONDERFUL Malmero Perle' in Mangue (yellow). The White piece that was embossed and stamped on is Curious Iridescent in Cryogen White. Let me tell you, you WANT an entire package of the Cryogen White. It is wonderful to stamp on, it is soft and has a slight sparkle to it. It also embosses just plain wonderful! I am always looking for a good paper to stamp on so I wanted to be sure to pass this good stuff onto you.
The "with Love" part on the bottom of the white paper is a border Cuttlebug embossing plate. With those letters raised, I brushed over them with a black Fluid Chalk stamp pad to that they were emphasized. I also brushed over the white piece with that same black pad. This was then stamped with this amazing dot stamp by PaperTreyInk using a yellow Momento stamp pad.
The butterfly is cut with a Cuttlebug die. Then this is a 2-step die which means that the shape comes with it's own matching embossing plates. I picked the "dot" embossing. I used the side where the dots "go inward". I rubbed over this with a few different Fluid Chalk stamp pads, some yellows and a black that is focused on the edges. I used little black buttons to decorate the butterfly and yellow rhinestones were placed on each of the buttons for some added bling.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
