RAK Winner & Carte Postale

Did you all have a Happy Valentine's Day? I sure did. My DH asked me if I wanted flowers for Valentine's Day and I jokingly said, in lieu of flowers, I'll take money for stamps! I was ecstatic when he agreed! YAY! I get new rubbah! He also got me the new Sims Life Stories. I'm not much of a computer game player, but I LOVE the sims. I think it's because I get to dress them up in different outfits and decorate their houses! LOL! If only my house was as plush as my Sim's! :) My hubby is the COOLEST? So what did y'all get? Anyone's significant other surprise them with something cool or super romantic?

Okay, enough chit chat. The winner of the Little Princess RAK card is Amy who blogs at ZoeLife Creations. Congrats Amy, please email me your snail mail addy so I can send off your RAK. Thanks everyone for your comments. You guys keep me smiling every day!!!

Today's card features the Stampin' Up Enchante papers from the Winter Mini. I just HAD to have these papers and the Carte Postale set for Christmas, but I've been a little intimidated by it. By the time I actually received the set and got it mounted I'd seen so many cards on SCS with it, that I couldn't think of anything original to do with it. Today I think I finally came up with something unique.

I started by stamping the filigree stamp from Carte Postale twice in Perfect Plum on Pale Plum paper. I then cut and rounded two corners of each piece and matted on Perfect Plum Cardstock. Next I stamped the flower square on the Enchante paper with Perfect Plum ink and matted with Pale Plum and Perfect Plum cardstock. I painted the stamped images with a mixture of Crystal Effects and lavendar glitter and then mounted everything on the Enchante paper. I then cut two 1/2" strips of the double-sided paper and flipped them so the other design showed. The Thank You sentiment is from the Fancy Flexible Phrases and is stamped on a small oval punch of the Enchante paper. I added two Forever Flowers from my stash with a brad and finished off by dotting around all the edges with my Perfect Plum Stampin' Write Markers.
