For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, (December 11, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.

Today, we are celebrating the release of the "Nature's Postage" stamp set:
For my card, I wanted to show that you could use these "Nature's Postage" stamps without making them look like postage stamps.  It makes them more versatile.  I stamped the image, colored it with Copic markers, then cut out the postage stamp edge portion of the stamp.  I covered up the 55 with the tag.  The papers I used are Pear Pizazz from Stampin Up and new patterned papers from Graphic 45.  I used a Nestabilities tag die for the sentiment and added a few half pearls.  The beautiful ribbon is from Mark's Finest Papers.  I completed the card by adding a small amount of glitter to the center of the flower.
