Sorry this post is late, but I have been trying to retrieve my lost comments as quickly as possible and I was able to get back about half. Thanks to ALL who left me comments and to those who reposted. I am so, so grateful.
So, with that said, by random draw, the winner of my personal give-away is NANCY CARROLL! Nancy, if you could e-mail me at email@example.com, I'll get your Simon Says Stamp e-card right off to you! If I don't hear back by 2/1, I'll draw another name.

Petals of Beauty K5897, and Say It All CL574.
I first stamped the Petals of Beauty on white cardstock, using the Colorbox inks. I then masked off the stems of the flower and over-stamped it two more times. Using a distress marker, I added additional stems and did some shading on the buds.
I die cut the bow, stamped it with the Tiny Ink Spots and used glue dots to adhere to frame. I backed the whole piece with a white card blank.
To finish it off, I black embossed the sentiment and colored all of the flowers and stems with Wink of Stella. You can't see it very well in the photo, but it gives a beautiful glimmer finish to the card!
Don't forget to check back at the Hero Arts blog tomorrow for another day of hopping with some very talented designers!
