Did you hear the big news???  We are celebrating our One year anniversary over at Stamp, Ink, Paper!  I have no idea how it could possibly be one year since the SIP Challenge Blog started.  The year has flown by! We've had a blast creating and seeing all of your creations every week!   By now you may know that we are also having a blog hop in celebration and that you have an opportunity to win some prizes!  If this is the first you've heard about our Anniversary Celebration and the chance to win fabulous prizes, make sure you click the Challenge Badge below and check out the details!

So this week is .... drum roll please.... Cardmaker's Choice!!  And the crowd goes WILD!!!!  So for my card I went with the Celebration idea!

I used my mini-treat bag framelits to make the envelope for my card.  Here is the inside...

I used the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP for the mini treat bag... I know, I know.. not a pop of pink in this paper, just gorgeous thick white with embossed gold dots.  I added a 1" strip of Emerald Envy and then a 3/4" piece of vellum that has gold embossed circles like the dsp to tone down the emerald strip.  I then added a strip of the new Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon.  Next I added a MFT stitched die cut Gold Foil Circle.   On that I added an Emerald Envy Swirly Scribble Wreath and some Swirly Scribble Flowers in Peekaboo Peach.  The die cut portion was clear embossed.  Did you notice the small one?  It is just one of the centers of the flowers that I thought would make a cute mini flower. Lastly I added a wooden Celebrate embellishment and a little folded strand of gold sequin trim.  The card portion was Emerald Envy with Peekaboo Peach and Whisper White layered on.  The birthday sentiments were stamped in Emerald Envy and are from the Gina K Designs Birthday Greetings stamp set.  I just love some of the sentiments in that set.  Sometimes you just want more than Happy Birthday and isn't this one great!  I just LOVE the font!!

Here's a close of of the inside sentiments.  I stapled a small piece of the Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon to the Emerald Envy cardstock layer prior to adding the Peekaboo Peach and White layers.  I thought that would make the card easier to pull out.

So I thought I'd share with you my prize contribution for one of the U.S. winners this week.. a set of MFT Die-namics Square Zig Zag Stitched Die Stax!

So make sure you upload a card on the Challenge Blog for your chance to win!  Winners will be announced June 20th!
