The more you enter, the more you'll increase your odds of winning :)
          I am loving the card I made this week! It's probably because I have some weird love for bubbles and circles, lol! I hand stamped all the circles/bubbles you see on the light beige card-stock. I wanted a certain design but didn't have any card-stock or paper that I had wanted to use so I just made my own. That is what I love about stamping, you can create your own papers/backgrounds. If you haven't tried to design your own paper/background yet, you really should give it a try. It's so much fun and I think you'll love it! For the sentiment, I printed it out onto white card-stock and then took the same inks that I used on the rest of the card and sponged the white card-stock to get the look I wanted. It looks like this card was hard to make but it was actually super easy! Just stamp basically where ever you want, you don't need a plan or specific layout. Just stamp away while having fun doing it! Now to introduce my card I think I need a drum roll. (pretend you hear it, lol) Ta Da! Here is my card!

Sorry for the dim lighting of the picture. I wasn't able to get the natural lighting I usually use because it's been raining everyday this week and my Foldio2 has still not arrived :( The bow also for some reason doesn't look like it matches but it actually does. The overall size of this card is 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" squared. I reduced each layer by 1/4" for the outer squares and then for the 3 inside squares I reduced them down by a 1/2" then repeated the 1/4" increments. The sentiment panel was reduced down by 1/2" but I used a scalloped edge die to do the borders, so it didn't turn out to be a perfect square but I still am happy with it.
