Joan's Garden's Weekly Challenge #8 - JustRite Blog Hop

Good morning! Today I am sharing my project for this week's Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #8 and a special blog hop featuring JustRite Stamps!  I am so excited and honored to have been chosen by Joan and Selma to participate in this blog hop! 

Here is my card:


A few words about my project.  I started with a card base of SU Vintage Violet and some beautiful patterned paper from Webster's Pages Spring Market/Yacht Club/Country Estate Petite Papers. My main focal image is from the gorgeous JustRite set, Breath of Spring Borders & Centers. It was stamped on Cryogen White Iridescent with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers. I cut out the main image and mat with Spellbinders Petite Oval Dies.  I added some Liquid Pearls around the border of the oval frame and some May Arts wide Crocheted Lace Ribbon.  I finished it with two butterflies I punched from the same patterned paper pack with a MS punch.

Now here's the VERY EXCITING NEWS:  this week you have the chance to win an AMAZING PRIZE PACKAGE that you definitely won't want to miss out on!  JustRite Stamps has generously donated the GRAND PRIZE for Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #8 of 2011.  The prize package includes the following JustRite Products:
  • Acrylic Block Set - $8.95

That's a grand prize package valued at OVER $191!!!  But that's not all!  In addition to this fabulous grand prize, there will be additional prize packages from Joan's Gardens.  You'll have two additional chances to win a prize!

To be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE, you will have until next Thursday morning (March 10) at 6:00 AM EST to link your card or project for the challenge on Joan's Gardens' site.  The winner of the grand prize package from JustRite Stamps will be chosen by a random drawing and will be announced Friday morning (March 11).  The winner will also be entered in the end of year drawing for a $100.00 gift certificate from Joan's Gardens!  See all the challenge details on Joan's blog.

Here's how you can win one of the two additional prizes.  As part of this week's event, Joan and Selma have invited 12 guest designers to join in a special blog hop featuring JustRite stamps.  While visiting each of the blogs on the hop, you will have a chance to win a prize from Joan's Gardens.  In order to be eligible for one of these 2 prizes, you need to leave a comment on all 14 blogs in the hop (12 guest designers, plus Selma and Joan).
