I was so excited to find out that one of my cards I submitted from the Occasion Mini won the card contest. I submitted several - which I will show you over the next week- but this one landed me this booty of sweet shop suite with the Designer paper, stickers (just gorgeous! ) and the Jelly bean brads.

This was my card that was hanging in the winner's gallery-shucks!
The base is Island Indigo with a layer of crumbcake stamped with A to Z stamp in crumbcake and sponged around the edges with the same ink. I cut a piece of First Edition DSP 3/4 inches tall and then stamped the You're My Type onto the crumbcake piece above the DSP. I then put a piece of scallop border ( but in the submission I useed a ribbon border punched out and cut in half lengthwise). I then stamped the typewriter and message in Island indigo and adhered it to the typewriter image on the crumb cake using dimensionals. (Note that I stamped the image on the bottom so I could see the handle on the right and left side but did not want to cut it out.... Take calendar alphabet ( and you can say practically anything) stamp your message coming out of the letter with island indigo- another card I made said - to my sweet...." you could put a heart inside to say sweetheart.... or put the words, sister, mother, friend, as you wish. I changed up the color to use pool party, Indigo and white and that one is also oh so pretty... I've been so jazzed up by this meeting- details and pictures to follow...
