Big shot challenge prize

Judging by the number of entries, lots of you already know about our Stampalot challenge where there is a Big Shot up for grabs as well as Blog Hop prizes. But for those of you who don't know - where have you been all week ? Click here to find out how to enter..........I'm sure there must be loads of you who would love that prize and all you have to do is make a easy is that ?

The Stampalot challenge certainly has kept me busy this week and I am afraid I am still neglecting all my blog friends, I am so sorry but there has been precious little time for blog hopping or crafting. But on a positive note I have actually managed one card today. It's one I needed to make for an order for a young lady for her boyfriend, but it fits some challenge themes so I am taking the opportunity to share it with you.

The theme at Stamping for the Weekend and Creative Card Crew is "Valentine" and ABC challenge is "N for New". My image is Penny Black stamp three times, coloured with Copics and decoupaged. The balloons have been liberally glittered. The frame is a Nestie run through the Big Shot and the border Martha Steward embossed hearts using the "New" element which is the very pretty glittery Doodlebug DP and I used the tiny hearts from the border cut-outs to dot around the image. All in all a quick simple card.
