Flowers and Shapes -- Guest designing for Fitztown

Today was supposed to be my last guest designing post for Fitztown, but I'm staying on for another month (yea!), so I'll have 2 more posts with them in July.  Today, I made a shaped card to fit this week's challenge theme.  I LOVE shaped cards, and I LOVE coloring flowers, so this was a particularly fun one for me!

The flower is Fitztown FL1.  I just love all the beautiful floral images in the Fitztown store, and this one is sooooo fun to color with Copic markers! 
I cut the shaped card out on my Cameo Silhouette.  I found the card shape in the Silhouette Online Store.  The shaped behind the stamped image is cut with a Spellbinders die. The sentiment is a stamp from Close to My Heart. I finished the card off with some 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon from the new Tie Dye 2 Bundle, then added a stickpin made by my crafty friend, Randi (thanks, Dear!)

I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post this week, I just reached 400 followers on my blog, and I have over 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between now and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already.
