Your chance to win StitchyBear Stamps!

I decided to make my version of a Clean and Simple (CAS) card today, partly to inspire you to join along in a few fun challenges this week:

I used this lovely word art with roses from Delicious Doodles, one of the great artists whose images are available at StitchyBear Stamps. I digitally colored the swirl, and then printed the image onto vellum & heat-embossed it in Kaleidoscope glittered embossing power by Stampendous. I colored the rose with Copics, on the reverse side.

March Mega Collaboration
This week's challenge at OSAAT is extra-special, because it features the release of the awesome March Mega Collaboration (left)!

These images are exclusive to StitchyBear Digital Stamps; If sold separately, this collaboration is worth over $35.00, but right now you can get it FREE if you spend $12.00 anywhere in the store.

You could win this great collection simply by making a Spring/Easter project, using a digi stamp, for OSAAT Challenge #102!

Fall-to-Layout #179
Card Crafter's Circle
I used my handy "Fiber Friend" piercing template to create the stitching; the vellum and DP are simply sewn together with this delicious Twinery twine.

Anne-Marie inspired me to check out this week's Card Crafter's Circle challenge. The patterned paper had a lot of white roses, and I colored most of them with a yellow marker. The ribbon rose is from a white, shabby-chic ribbon. I dyed the rose with a yellow Tattered Angels glimmer mist, and dried it with my heat gun right up to the point where the threads started to melt (but not so long that it burned!)

I put the message portion on the back:
Thanks for the inspiration everyone!
