I'm a WINNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, you read correctly; I am a winner!  Well a top three winner, but a winner none the less!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you tell I am excited :D

I was actually a little surprised that I placed at all; not because my card isn't awesome, but because the picture doesn't do it justice.  The card is amazing in person (in my humble opinion LOL).  The photo pales in comparison.  To explain how much they differ here is a little story...

My large-son was looking at my card and admiring it soon after it was finished.  Later that day I was finishing my blog post for the challenge, my son came up and was peering over my shoulder.  He became quite disgruntled and said, "Mom, you copied that person's card!"

I kept trying to explain that it was a picture of the card he had been admiring earlier.  He wouldn't believe me.  I asked him why he didn't believe me and he said, "because your card is WAY nicer!"

  You can admire my Inspired by Stamping Challenge Top Three Winner badge on the right-hand side of my blog. And in case you missed the card, here it is again complete with top three winner badge.  Hope you enjoy...
