Do you want to win?

Is that a silly question? Would you like to win some Nikki Sivils goodness? In honor of National Scrapbook Day, Nikki Sivils is going to offer some give aways.
You have a few ways to be a winner.
ONE - leave a comment on my blog, I will be picking one winner on Sunday, May 2. Be sure that I am able to contact you.
TWO - check out the blogs of some of the other design team members, many of them will also be offering a give away by leaving a comment on their blogs. The links are on the side of the Nikki Sivils blog.
THREE - join in the card challenge on the Nikki Sivils Blog. If you don't have Nikki Sivils products, you can make a card with any supplies. You have a little more time to do this one.
Now to share a some Nikki Sivils creations with you.
This is a round card. The card base itself is round and then this decorated piece is glued on top of that base.
All of these elements are part of the Will He Be the 1 collection. I coated the milkshake die cut with Aleene's Paper Glaze so it would look like glass.
The scallop ruffle is actually a large round patterned piece of paper from the collection. I cut off the outer scallop edge and then I clipped into that border. By making the clips into that strip, it made it easier to gather it and glue it around the outside edge of the round card front.
I love the look of a quilt on a card so I cut small squares from patterns in the Flaming Butterfly collection. These papers are from the mini pad where the prints are smaller.
I used one of the bread tags on my card and the buttons are self adhesive and have the tread already on them. Talk about EASY buttons to add to a project.
Thanks for visiting and for leaving a comment to be in the running to win,
