CC99: Only one MORE!!

So it's here! CC99 is here! Only one more week til I get to give away the AWESOME prize Leigh O'Brien made! And guess what?!?! Besides the fact that you can win it.....you get ANOTHER sneak peek today! Oh yeah, and I'll show you my color challenge card too! I have such a hard time taking photos of dark cardstock. I am getting better, just more fiddling needed!

I used my Big Blossom stamp for the first time. I inked paisley in Not Quite Navy and then kissed the big flower onto the paisley. I stamped it on white cardstock and cut it out. Then I mounted it on Night of Navy cardstock and cut that out so that it had a small navy border for the flower. I stamped paisley in versamark on the Not Quite Navy paper. Then I stamped my sentiment in night of navy on white. I punched that out with the Word Window punch and sponged the edges with Not Quite Navy. Then I mounted that on a Night of Navy window punch and then onto the cardstock. I originally had a navy button in the center of the flower, but it just wasn't working for me. I went with a prima and a little bling instead. I thought it was kinda boring so I added two night of navy word window punches in the upper left corner and poked two holes in each. Then I ran some narrow organdy ribbon through those and tied it off. This dressed it up a little.

And here's the sneak peek of the CC100 prize! Leigh is going to have more information on her blog as well.
