A pretty card and a WINNER!

Happy Wednesday!  Earlier this month, I won some blog candy during the Market Street Stamps release.  I've been dying to use them but for some reason, I never know what to do when it comes to stamped images.  I think I am too much of a perfectionist.

I made my card for the Market Street Sketch Challenge...

I stamped the compass image on ivory cardstock....the mat is from Elegant Edges.  I heat embossed the image and then used Tim Holtz distress inks (fired brick and vintage photo) to get this red color.   The pattern paper is from Echo Park - For the Record.  

I am also entering this card in the Moxie Fab World - Fanatical about Botanicals challenge and linking up to

Passionately Artistic

And now for my WINNER from the Crop Chocolate Hop....sorry, it took so long. 

Very nice! Fits the bill for this holiday weekend!
