Commission card and a giveaway

Hello there! How are you doing? I'm writing this on Thursday night to schedule it for the morning - its my birthday tomorrow and I'm very excited - there seems to have been lots of cards coming through the door so I will probably be opening them when this post goes live.

Firstly I want to show you a card I made for a friend for a commission - this is the second one I got asked to do on Saturday at the charity event. I rather like it - what do you think?

The image is from saturated canary - I think she may be called Blanche - but I could be wrong! My brief wwas for glamour - and I think this lady is very glamorous! She's been coloured with promarkers and added to a diecut of my favourite spellbinder oval. This has been added to red paper and then to the card blank which is a large one of the cupcake crafting cards. I've added flowers, pins and a pearl fluorish and also the recipients name! Oh and the sequins too!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Saturated Canary:saturatedcanarychallenge Show us your lovely
craftsandmechallenges: Something old - the sequins must be about 10 years old - I just never seem to use them!
audsentimentschallengeblog: Anything goes
Whimsywhimsyinspires: Shaped cards

AI:artisticinspirationschallenges Shaped cards
fussyandfancychallenge: Bling it on

Now then onto the small giveaway - I have three stamps pictured here:

If you chose to write a comment on this post just let know which stamp you would like - I will keep this open until Monday morning at 10am BST then I will draw a winner for each stamp and let the winners know on my Tuesday post. Okay dokey? Does that sound okay!

Big Hugs and thanks for your friendship! I really appreciate your feedback and this is just a small way to say thankyou!
