Make it Monday and a WINNER!

I've been so busy I haven't had a lot of time to blog lately, but then I remembered that I was remiss in posting the winner of my Anniversary Giveaway! YIKES! Without further ado:

Christy Compton Hall wins a $25 gift certificate to her choice of stamp companies listed in the original post.
Congratulations Christy!  Send me an email so I can have the GC sent directly to you! Please include your mailing address to receive the card I made too.
(Winner chosen from all eligible entries by random.org.)


This card was created for the new Make It Monday challenge that Papertrey Ink is hosting. This week it was a "go-to sentiment" card. I really enjoyed this challenge from Erin and I can't wait to make a few more of these sentiment only cards. Great idea Erin!
I used PTI's Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Stamper's select white, and kraft to create this sweet baby card.  I also used seven different stamp sets on this one! A little Argyle, Outlines Alphabet, Signature Greetings, Bitty Baby Blessings, Favor it:Baby, Night Night Moon, and Round and Round (last year's anniversary set).

The crinkle ribbon was a gift from Sherry. She makes the most beautiful colors of this stuff. This one happened to match Blueberry Sky perfectly! Thanks Sherry!

Thanks for stopping by today bloggy friends. I have been remiss in blog-hopping and promise to catch up soon! Miss you all...

Sara Mac said...

Yay for Christy!!

Dana I love the gradient color on the main sentiment. Love the buttons too, but I'm too much of a hoarder to use that many on one card. LOL!!

Christina said...

Love this, Dana! The coloring of the letters is fantastic, and all that sweet argyle is perfect for a baby card. Super sweet!

And that Make It Monday card is AMAZING. I love the blues in the outline alphabet, the argyle on kraft, the sideways stamps to fit in the mat. VERY cool. Oh yes, stitching, buttons galore, seam binding, fancy pin - um, wow.

Dana said...

Dana, this is so stunning!! I'm positively DROOLING! It's gorgeous! I really have to try that seam binding that seems to be dominating the papercrafting world right now. It looks delicious! Hmmm... Maybe I'm hungry....

ashjoy said...

Diane said...

Everything about this card is totally fabulous! I'm a little old to have another baby boy, but I sure would be happy to receive this card if I was!!!

Sue Ann said...

Here I am LATE to the party to celebrate this AMAZING card!!! I love the stamping on the mat stack allowing the background stamping to really shine on this fabby creation. I love that ribbon and pin ....... the outline letters ..... I still feel like I need that set ...... your one card with the black and buttons that you did earlier in the year still comes to my mind in the wee hours when I cannot sleep and I think where do I want to expand on my stamps ..... back to the card ..... the buttons YUMMY and all around a fantastic take on the challenge!!!

Vannessa said...

This is just gorgeous Dana! Love all the little special touches - the buttons, ribbon, hat pin, stitching and the shading in the sentiment!

Laurie said...
