My First Blog Giveaway!

This week's Splitcoast's clean & simple challenge is a real easy one.  If you have time be sure to check it out.  The challenge can be found here.  The challenge this week is to create a CAS card using dry embossing.

I use embossing on a lot of my cards.  It's such an easy way to add that 'wow' factor or to add just a little something extra without over doing it.  My cuttlebug is one of my most used tools and I just love it!

I originally made one card of these cards and I then I really liked the way it turned out. 

These literally took only minutes to make, so I decided to keep going and I make an entire set of cards (in different colors).  I was planning on doing 3 birthday, 3 thinking of you, and 3 thank you cards, but I ended up using a few different sentiments from SU's Warmest Regards stamp set.




I ran the upper portion of my card stock through my cuttlebug machine and then I tied on the ribbon.  Next I colored just the centers of the embossed flowers using my SU markers, and then I added my sentiment- so quick and easy!

And what am I going to do with all of these cards you ask?  Well, I've decided that it's time to have my very first blog give away and the prize will be this set of cards, with envelopes of course. 

All you need to do to win is to leave a comment for me here in this post (I'd love to have you as a follower as well, but it's not required). 

I will be drawing a winner one week from today on Monday morning, July 19th.  I will contact the winner (and I'll post it on my blog as well) and then I'll get these cards in the mail. Everyone is welcome to play along, I will ship outside of the US.  Good Luck and thanks for stopping by!

Below is a close up photo of one of my cards.  And I have individual photos of all of these cards posted here in my Splitcoast gallery.
