Blog Candy Winner and card

Wahoooo!!! I have a blog candy winner from the group who sent Izzy a card. First I wanted to thank everyone for you kindness. Izzy LOVED getting all of her fun cards and packages. Everytime she got one she said "For MEEEE?" and then treasured all of the cards, stickers and book. Actually Jena, the winner, sent a map that her daughter made and Izzy has been carying that along for the last 3 weeks. Everytime we get in the card she says the map says to go right Mom LOL!

Congrats Jena!!!! Please e-mail me your address again (of course that is the envelope that Izzy ripped open real good and I only have a partial address) and I will get those goodies to you right away.

On to the fun card for today. I used the SPCC color combo and a year cards challenge from Kristina and two peas in a bucket found here.
Here is my card
Okay isn't that layout fun? It was a sketch challenge for this months cards and I loved this one. I will actually work on all 3 of them at some point this month, but this was my favorite by far. The vellum was an idea I lifted from Kristina as well. I did dry emboss rather than heat emboss. The colors came together nicely and as always, this is a combo I would love to use again. I must say Samantha is FABULOUS at picking colors that I rarely use and making me want to pick them up again.
I am actually going to use this for a birthday card for my Aunt. I have 3 more Birthday cards to go for this year and then I am going to start on January as well.
It's a good life!

I really like the design of this card - I never think to use curved elements other than circles!! Great job.
