"We are never so lost" Shabby Chic card and a Giveaway

Hello All!  Kathy Jo here to share a shabby chic style card using the beautiful "We are never so lost that our Angel cannot find us" stamp.  It is such a wonderful and uplifting sentiment!
The card came together quickly: The card base was corrugated cardboard with Distress Crackle applied.  Two sheets of patterned paper from Prima's Annalee was distressed along the edges and adhered to the base (Zip Dry paper glue works very well).  We are never so lost was stamped using VersaMark on vellum paper and heat embossed in silver.  Next a layer of white card stock was die cut using Memory Box's Grapevine Wreath and another layer using Memory Box's Catalina Wreath.  Catalina's Wreath was die cut again and the flowers were fussy cut and applied to the wreath stack. Stickles was applied along the edges.  Bling was applied at will.  :)
Isn't it a lovely stamp?  If you would like to win this beautiful stamp leave a comment on this blog for a chance to win it.  If you would like two chances, hop over to my blog and leave a comment on the card post before 5pm Monday July 28th.  The winner will be announced on my blog on Tuesday.  Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

I've really enjoyed viewing Kathy Jo's entries in the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenges, and this card is a perfect example of why that is true. So much wonderful texture, beautifully composed and the way she wreathed that beautifully embossed sentiment is the perfect finishing touch. Thanks, Kathy Jo! http://www.kathybydesign.com

The layout is something Granny would have used ( born 1884 in Cannobie Scotland) The wreathe is so beautiful, light airy yet full. The embossed vellum is truly lovely. A great card. Carole
