Exciting news & a GIVEAWAY!!!

(Make sure you read this entire post because there's a giveaway at the end!)

Have you seen the news over at Avery Elle?

Avery Elle has just launched its own line of 6x6 patterned paper pads which coordinate with their amazing ink pads!   They're designed to be the classics.  The pieces of paper that you can't get enough of.  Yay for an entire pad of basics.  So far, there's two collections - here's hoping for more!

The colors in The Brights Collection paper pads are custom made to coordinate with  Aquamarine, Fizz, Mimosa and Raspberry Pigment Ink Pads. 


The colors used in The Sorbet Collection paper pads are custom made to coordinate with the Lemon Grass, Mint To Be, Pixie and Sea Glass Pigment Ink Pads.
I used The Sorbet Collection papers on this card. 
I stamped the images in Red & Goldie and colored them in with my Prismacolors and Gamsol.  The white panel is die cut using the new Dotted dies.  I can't tell you how much I loved being able to stamp that Lemon Grass color and being able to pull the perfect patterned paper color to coordinate. 
 
I love this paper so much that I've already used a ton of it and need to order more.  So, to share in the fun and get the word out about this amazing paper, I would like to offer one Brights Collection 6x6 pad and one Sorbet Collection 6x6 pad to one lucky commenter.
