*5000 Page Views!!!*

WOW o WOW! I can't believe I've made it to 5000+ page views on my little Creative Mess! I'm very excited about that.

I made this card yesterday for someone special and decided that it would be a perfect card to thank everyone who visits my blog. I received a tin of huge Prima Flowers from my girlfriend and finally decided to make something with them. The Creamy Caramel card is 4.25X4.25" I stamped it in Creamy Caramel with Print Background. I lined each of the diamonds with the clear Sakura Stardust Gel Pen (you can't see the sparkle in the scan) and added a black dot between each diamond. Thank you is stamped in Bravo Burgundy on Creamy Caramel and layered onto Bravo Burgundy cardstock. I coloured the edges of the Bravo Burgundy piece with the Stardust pen and added a gem for some bling. I put the large flower together with a gold brad and adhered it to the card with a glue dot.

To celebrate my 5000 page views, I'm offering a contest! Yup, yet another blog contest! If you leave me a comment on this post between now and Tuesday morning (November 21st) your name will be entered to win a pack of fun stuff from me!

Thanks again for taking a look at my little Creative Mess!
