Invitation Inspiration, Make It Monday Challenge & Blog Candy Winner

When Melissa received this invitation in the mail...

... I immediately knew that I wanted to use Scor Tape to add glitter to a card. Lucky for me, this is the Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink. Here's the card I created inspired by this invitation:

To create this card, I cut a standard sized card out of white cardstock and rounded the corners on the right side. This card has a lot of layers and I just started building from the left. First<>
I added the scallop layers to the top of the cardstock that was stamped with the background and used ribbon to hide the seam. Next, I added more layers (three to be exact) for the sentiment. For the inside of the card, I created a sentiment on my computer, die cut it to match the front and added the stamped border and leaf accent. Here's a look at the inside:
Now before I go any further with this post, I want to sing the praises of Fiskar's customer service. As I mentioned above, my border punch broke. I was very surprised when it did break because the paper I was punching was very thin and didn't put any pressure on the punch. Anyway, I contacted Fiskars, filled out a form on-line, sent them a picture of my punch and Voila! I had a new punch delivered to my door within the week!
Just so happens that the dress Melissa chose for this Bat Mitzvah also matched the invitation. LOL! Here's my beautiful daughter all dressed up and looking way too grown up for her father's taste:
Now, if you have read this far down, it's time to announce the winner of my Valentine's day Blog Hop Blog Candy.

My favorite Valentine's Day was when DH made me a "fancy" dinner at home all by himself. It was a total surprise!
