Paper Temptress Giveaway!

I Love Great Paper.  I think I need a button to wear on my chest with that saying!  Paper Temptress, our giveaway sponsor this week, is all about GREAT paper. I tend to horde it, but Patricia is trying to break me from that habit! It is a habit one lucky winner can break, too -- with the $25.00 gift certificate to Paper Temptress as our giveaway prize.

The card above uses Paper Temptress papers. The fun thing about this card is that the beautiful paper used for the teal and the orchid are the same paper! One side is teal, on orchid -- "blue ice" and grape" double sided paper. It is just luxuriously beautiful!

I used the Tissued Color Technique (February 2011 issue of the TJ Newsletter) and layered that on the Grape side of the paper, then layered that on the teal piece that was done using the Cuttlebug Highlights Technique (Emboss or Die CD). All-in-all a simple card, but Paper Temptress paper just makes it pop! Stamps: Close To My Heart, Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up!

Go take a look at the gorgeous papers on Paper Temptress' site and dream about what you would order -- and don't forget -- use TJ15 to take 15% off of your order, too.

To win the card and the $25.00 gift certificate, simply leave a comment on this message on my blog and make sure to leave me your email address. I will have my random number generator select a lucky winner on Monday, March 14th, at 9am.  Good luck!

What a beautiful card! I, too, am a paper addict. I think I have at least 10 different whites in my stash because each one has a different shade or feel. Paper addicts unite!
