Stamping 411 - Our Anniversary Secrets - Revealed!

Doesn't that title sound like a tabloid headline?!~
Stamping 411 - The Real 411 about the 411 Operators!!
The real truth is that we all lead pretty normal (if you can call it that!) lives. But we have the best job EVAH! And that's being Stampin' Up! demonstrators, paper crafts artists and the best part of all, FRIENDS!

It's been so fun celebrating Stamping 411's First Anniversary with you all this week, but the time has come for our little 'guessing game' about who's card was who's to end.
Without further ado, here is the actual card that I made:

I loved making this card and the stamp set - Chic Boutique - was new to me - I won it on the cruise! Lee Conrey was the one to post this on her blog and it cracked me up because I think it is totally something that Lee would do. She might have used Whisper White for the base though! :)

Here's a close up of the focal point, can you barely see the Presto Patterns paper there? I think it shows up better in the first photo.

I used the cross hatch design but chose to leave it white so the texture would be subtle.

Here is the inside view:

I used Elements of Style for the inside panel and the background of the card front - it was a great compliment to the focal image!
My complete supply list is below for you.

It was such a fun thing this week, reading all of your guesses and viewing all of your gorgeous card entries for the sketch challenge! We will be doing the drawing for the Mega Blog candy soon, so be looking for that on Stamping 411, ok?

Have a blessed day!
