The Stamp Basket DT & my candy winner!

As I was ill last week, I'm doing my post for The Stamp Basket blog today... but before I start waffling about my card, I need to announce the winner of my £15 LOTV voucher!  I left the decision to Mr Random.org, and he says that the lucky winner is....

Number 100 - Fi!

Congrats Fi, I'm so pleased for you hun :o)  Send me an email and I'll give you the voucher details.

Now onto my card, which is my first attempt at a twisted easel card - thank you Joey for your fab tutorial, it gave me the push I needed to try it out.





It's blinkin' hard work trying to get a decent photo of one of these things!  I'll have to learn though, because now I've made one I'm sure I'll be making more of them.

Items available from The Stamp Basket

Memory Box - madera corner die (used as a flourish on the base)

I've coloured the lovely Rose Scent Tilda with Prisma pencils, with diamond stickles for a bit of sparkle.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, leaves were cut with a Stampin' Up die and the sentiment is from this set at Pink Gem Designs.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Sorry to rush off, but we're just about to eat.  I'll be around to catch up with you all later though :o)
