Turquoise & Teal Day (AND Another Bonus Prize!)

Are you having as much fun as me?
Even though it's a lot of work and lots of emails to sort through, I love hosting my Days of Angelosity!
Today is Turquoise and Teal Day. I've got goodies to add to that basket, but card.

I absolutely love this sketch today. I received a card in the mail from a friend of mine that used this sketch. That card is displayed in my stamp room because I liked it so much.
Today I used the
ODBD set "Flourished Christian Symbols". It's a great go-to set, especially if you serve in the ministry! Check it out!

My card uses the cross in the set. I made it super sparkly with some Heat and Stick powder and Coral Crystal Glitter. The scalloped circle is punched from DP that is glittered as well. This card just sparkles!

Now for the goods! Included in your addition to the Pot of Gold:

~Eight Pre-scored cards in shades of teal and turquoise:
2 Taken with Teal, 2 Tempting Turquoise, 2 Cool Caribbean, 2 Aqua Mist (PaperTrey)
~Turquoise Jewel Accents by Darice (Other colors are included!)
~A small vial of 'Mermaid Tears' Zoomz (acrylic embellishments)
~A bag of Turquoise Buttons
~A Key chain Photo Book in Turquoise Plaid
~One yard of Turquoise Flowered Ric Rac and a length of Turquoise velvet trim

~An acrylic box FULL of assorted shapes and sizes of butterflies in turquoise and teal.... hundreds of butterflies (a few shown)

I was a little punch happy when I was making my card this morning. I went through my scrap box and punched a lot of Scalloped Ovals before I decided on the right one to use on my card. In fact I punched 40!
Remember when I said that participants get some extra chances? Here is the 1st drawing of JUST the challenge participants. What will you get.... well, all of those scalloped ovals of course! I am going to give you a little extra time before I draw a winner. I leave for the post office at 3:00 today. So, I'm drawing a winner at 2:30 in hopes I can have an address and get these ovals sent today! Go back and complete any or all of the 5 challenges posted so far to get your name in the hat. If you already have played, your name is already there!

If you're just now arriving at my blog and wondering what's going on.. well, we're having a birthday party. We're counting down the days until my birthday on November 7. This year I'm offering a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow and inviting all of my friends to play! (That's you!)
So, come on over and let's party!

See you at 2:30!

As you can tell from my card, scallops is one of the things I actually don't have any of! I've used the ones that were sent to me, so today when I saw the sketch I had to forgo the scallop for a plain oval!

RDOA 5 Sketch,

Very nice card. I had to break down and buy that set, but I have used it so often, especially with October being Minister Appreciation Month.
