The box arrived and, as usual, I opened it up to look at each item and squeal with excitement. The first products I chose to play with were a big stamp set called Medallion Mix-Up, the Best die (which is the word "best" in a lovely font), and the Simply the Best stamp set. Catherine also included some exclusive-to-SOA embossing powder called Wanderlust... which knocked my socks off! I used the EP on the Best die after gluing four die cuts of it together to elevate the word from the card base.
Here you can kind of see the shimmer:
I finished my card around 10:30 p.m. that day, but was too pooped to take pictures and post, (and I secretly didn't think my friend would get to make a card that day). Turns out she had two beautiful cards done and posted by shortly after 11 p.m. - so she easily won!
