The winner of the Cinderella card is...

Oh what a cute card Jak...I love the image and the colours you have used. Just perfick!
Love Sheila xx
Sheila if you could email me with your details I'll pop the card in the post for you.

On to todays card
Clean and fresh in moss shades.

I used Nestabilities labels to emboss the front of the card then cut out a smaller label shape and stamped it using the Lovely as a tree stamp set by Stampin Upinked with a mellow moss ink pad. I used the same ink to add some shading to the edge of the label die and the edge of the card to make it pop.
I added a green moss sheer ribbon and tied it around the card and into a bow at the front left side of the card.
The sentiment was stamped then punched out using the word punch by Stampin Up
If you would like to have this card leave me a comment and I'll do a draw for it.

What an elegant card and so clean! I love the idea of using the nestie to create an embossed frame. It adds so much without over piling the layers (which can hinder shipping). Um, I've run into that a few times. :o)
