Thinking Of your Birthday....and a Giveaway!

I have been meaning to share this card with you for some time now...and today seems like the perfect day to share this project, while I'm busy as a little bee working on a video for you to check out tomorrow!
 This was one of the first cards I made with straight from the nest Cricut cartridge, I love that tree and layered it on pop dots several times! The paper is the little boy blue collection from My minds eye and I love its cardstock weight and rich colors! {I'm a fan}
 This card really has every element that I love about paper...layers, embossing, stamping, stitching, die cuts, and scrummy embellishments! This card is still sitting on my display cabinet in my craft room , and is one of my favorites.....I see it everyday and have yet found it in my heart to give it away!!!
How about I give away an embossing folder? Yes??? You've got it!
Thanks to my generous sponsor Provocraft, I have one of my favorite folders to give to a lucky winner....and soon to be embossing queen :) The Herringbone folder can be yours if you leave me a comment with a way to contact you and you are entered to win! I will announce the winner Friday Jan 14th at 8:00AM

This is a fantastic card. I had to 'biggie size" it just to study all the detail. I love having different layers and textures for visual impact. What a great way to inspire us!

Great card! Of course you realize that if you kept ALL of your great cards, you'd be buried in them, right??! Thanks for the chance to win this embossing folder; I need to use my Cuttlebug (& Epic Six!) more often.
