I Won the Challenge at Scrapbook Unique

After a second round of voting, I am extremely happy to announce I won the Challenge at Scrapbook Unique.   Thank you to all who took the time to vote for me.  I am very pleased to have won because the other entries were great and the contestants were so creative!  Here is my winning entry.

Graphic45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Card

I'm always behind. it seem and this card is no exception.  It is for a very good friend and the best boss I ever had.  Mary tried her best to teach me how to prioritize toward deadlines.  She was a great mentor when I worked for her and I learned a lot.  It does not seem fair to her that her birthday was last month and I'm just now getting ready to mail it.  She will at least get it before Paul's card.  (They share the same birthday and I'm still working on his--almost finished, though.)

As you can see, it is a Center Step Card.  I modified a template from Splitcoaststampers that can be found HERE
At the end of this post, I list my dimensions for the card.
The image above shows the inside of the card.
The two images following show close up shots of the butterflies.  I used Glossy Accents to get the sheen.

If you follow the directions on the Splitcoaststampers site you can substitute the following dimensions I used for the Center Step Card/
1. Cut a piece of cardstock 11.75" x 6.5"
2. Cut 2 slits 1.5" from each edge on the 11.75" length; the slit is cut up from 1.25" from edge to 7.125"
3. Score on 2 outside edges at 1.25", 2.5", and 7.125"
4. Score on inside panel at 5.875"
