My Winning Card!

A couple months ago I entered one of Stampin Up's monthly contests and I won!  I was so excited!  Three free stamp sets....woo hoo!!  My project was published in this month's Stampin Success so I figured it was okay to post it.  I started by cutting the mat with a large Labels Framelit.  I cut a second label from copy paper and then used the next size down to cut out the center.  I adhered this to the first label with some Dotto and then sponged around the inside edge.  I left the mask on and stamped my images from the Field Flowers set.  I removed the mask and carefully sponged around the outside edge.  My sentiment is from the set Petite Pairs.  I popped the whole thing up on some dimensionals.  My ink colors are Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Old Olive.  This is a really simple technique with lots of wow factor.  Thanks for stopping by!

I SAW this in Stampin' Connection and was immediately drawn to it, knowing that I would case it! Thank you for giving us a description of how to make it, along with the colors you used. Now which 3 FREE stamp sets did you choose? :)
