A Country Fresh Card

Hey, everybody!  Today is a special occasion!  This is my 50th blog post, can you believe it?  I don’t know where the time has gone.  In honor of this special day, I’m having a GIVEAWAY!  Woohoo!  For the random lucky winner, I will make 4 cards for the occasion of their choice (birthday, thank you, congrats, etc- feel free to mix and match!).  All you have to do is subscribe to my blog (find the section in the sidebar, enter your email address, and click the “Follow” button) and leave a comment!  The more comments you leave, the more chances you’ll have to win.  Leave your comments starting now through Tuesday, March 19th at 5PM EST and I will announce the winner on my blog on Wednesday, March 20th. I can’t wait to read all your comments and make special cards for one of you!

And now, the card.  I made this card for the Paper Crafts Connection Country Fresh Gallery Challenge!  Head on over there to enter your own Country Fresh cards, but for now, here’s what I came up with:

Country Thank You 2

The paper all came from my scrap basket, and the flowers and label were from a DCWV sheet I bought a while back.  The “thank you” is a rub-on I found in my stash.  The kraft paper and twine give the card a down-to-earth quality that offsets the fancy scrollwork on the label and the lace…and it all comes together and says to me “country.”  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to subscribe and leave a comment for your chance to win 4 custom made cards!
