You'll want to grab a cup of coffee and get comfy this morning! It's the "grand opening" of the Paper Craft Crew Blog. While we HAVE been posting to it for sometime, this is the week we launch all the fun stuff!

So...down the right hand side of my blog, you'll want to check out all the other crew members blogs because EVERYONE is giving away blog candy! However, before you do, check out today's card:

I started off with a square base for this one, so the card is just 4" x 4". Tiny and cute! The polka dot Designer Series Paper is from the Festival of Prints Pack. I just LOVE how versatile this pack is. It's in the Holiday Catalogue, but you can use it for just about anything! It's only available till January 2nd, 2013, so get yours soon!

I added a piece of Very Vanilla to the bottom of the card front and then hid the seam using a length of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.

The main image from Apothecary Art was stamped in Basic Grey and coloured in using a Blender Pen with Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke Ink. "Dare to Dream" (from Loving Thoughts) was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and then end was flagged before it was adhered to the main image.

The whole image panel was then attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here's the sketch on which the card was based:

And now, for the BLOG CANDY. Today, just by commenting below, you could win a full pack of the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper:
