Winners, Winners, LOTS of Winners!(and a card)

The blogoversary celebration has ended, but the prizes need to be collected! There are LOTS of them!  First, though, I have a card I want to enter in this month's progressive challenge at The Outlawz. I'll show you that first. SUSPENSE!
This image is from Gerda Steiner Designs.  I tried Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils on it, but I'm not too happy with the results.  I have another one on my blog in a couple days that turned out better.  It is definitely a learning process.
These are some old Close To My Heart papers that I used.  I liked all the patterns on them against the circle patterns. I used dies from Lifestyle Crafts and Lawn Fawn to make this card. The sentiment is a stamp I won from Craftin' Desert Divas.
Now, for the weiners!  I mean whiners!  Oops! winners!!!!
