Last month the winner came from April's blog.  Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize winner this month?

Now for the details on how I created my easel card.  I stamped my image with Distress Ink (Black Soot) and heat embossed it with Clear embossing powder.  Next the image was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out.  A Sakura glue pen was used to add glue to all the small hearts on their clothing and then covered with Gypsy Red velvet glitter.

Lifestyle Crafts (Nesting Hearts) were used to create the glittery hearts  front panel.  I started out by die cutting Sticker Paper and glittered two of the hearts with Gypsy Red velvet glitter and the middle heart with Cloud Nine velvet glitter.  These nesting hearts were then adhered to white cardstock using Tear-ific tape, which was then adhered to the front of the easel card.  The image was pop dotted on top of the hearts.

I used the direct to paper method and Staz-On Blazing Red ink to color the inside of the card.  (My ink pad had some dry spots and I didn't have a reinker, but I liked the pattern it created.)

The sentiment, which is part of the stamp set, was stamped onto a strip of ribbon and adhered to the inside with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape.  I added strips of adhesive backed pearls to finish it off.

It's time to head on over to see what Marie has created for you.  Don't forget to leave all of us a comment to better you chance to win all four of the New Reveal stamp sets.

Anne, I love all your glitter and sparkle on your card. Very clever to stand the people on the hearts and roll them to the right...it looks very different than the sample that is rolled to the left! Definitely want this to be a stand up card.
