The winner will be announced on the Mark’s Finest Papers blog on Saturday, March 12, 2011.

I used the SCS Triple Tier Slider Card tutorial for my first card using today's set, Just Dandy. If you look closely, you can see where I added Polar White Flower Soft to the dandelions on the front.




My second project is not a card -- but a tissue box cover. I know a lot of people who have allergies, and dandelions tend to bring out the worst in them. So I figured a box of tissues might come in handy.



Be sure to comment on all the blogs to qualify for the prize. Next stop on the hop is Vicky .
