Grandparents Day Card & A Winner

Sunday is Grandparents Day and today I would like to share the card I made for my grandmother. The card is based on an incredible sketch by Aussie Caz, which she was kind enough to share for the September Card Sketch Challenge over at Paperthreads. The papers I used are all from K & Company. I used my i-rock to attach the green, blue and silver gems (the border is made using a template that came with my i-rock). The tag has a large silver eyelet at the top and I added some blue and green ribbon to it. The sentiment at the bottom of the tag is from K Andrew's Positive Thoughts stamp set. The poem is something I found online.





Here you can see the card with the tag pulled out.




And here is a closeup of the tag.





Challenges:
Paperthreads (September Sketch Challenge)
Celebrate the Occasion (Challenge #29 - Grandparents Day)
Party Time Tuesdays (Challenge #22 - Grandparents Day)
Crafting Misfit (Show & Tell)


And now for the winner of last week's Blog Candy . . . Pam (craftycards4u2). Congratulations, Pam! Send me an email with your mailing address and I will get your prize right out to you. I will be posting details on my Big Blog Candy Giveaway (to celebrate my 1-Year Blogoversary) sometime this weekend so be sure to check back.
