Trio #5 Challenge

Happy New Years Eve!  This is the last trio in my self-imposed challenge to use up my stash of papers.
I used IPPITY stamp set "Now and Always"
and MEMORYWORKS 6 x 6 paper pad
Cosmo Cricket: Circa 1934



I just love the way this flower turned out!  I can't take credit for the idea, I've seen lots of Ippity Chicks use this technique on their blogs and the website.
You just stamp this large flower stamp 3 times, each time on a different patterned paper.
Then you trim around each section of flower (small, medium, large) and layer them. 
If you ink the edges it gives some dimension and makes it a little more shabby.
Ink:  Unity "Noir"   Chalk Ink: Warm Brown
Buttons & twine: Papertrey Ink
Ribbon: Teresa Collins
Now for the GIVEAWAY details:
(I will include a Now & Always IPPITY stamp kit in my GIVEAWAY along with a few of my favorite things: buttons, ribbon, and other scrappy goodies)


Just leave a comment on this post or tomorrow's post and tell me which Trio of cards was your favorite.
Mention the number of trio(1-5) or stamp kit used in the comment.
You have until midnight on New Years Day. 
I will randomly select a winner and post Sunday afternoon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and visit my blog!
Best wishes for a wonderful new year!

Really hard to pick a favorite, they are all so adorable! #1 is a contender as I always love the Basic Grey papers. But...#5 won me over with its olde-timey look and wonderful sentiments. Thanks for sharing your gift of creativity. And Happy 2011!!!

I really enjoyed looking at your cards everyday! It was probably nice to use up your "stash!" My favorite was number 4...I loved the birthday hats and the stamps you used! Thanks for sharing!

Happy New Years Eve! Thanks for sharing your designs these past 5 days. I have to say that your number 5 is my favorite. I love the old fashioned look to the Cosmo Cricket papers and the Now and Always stamp set. The flower is darling!
Thanks again for all!
