Old Olive is the Winner!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the June Blog Hop! I always appreciate all of your fabulous comments!

You may not know this about me, but I'm kind of a geek and numbers fascinate me, so I made a pie chart to tally the results from my question "What is your favorite Carryover Color from Stampin' Up!'s Color Renovation?":

23% of you said you love Old Olive, while 15% love Chocolate Chip, and 13% love my personal favorite, Kraft A.K.A. Crumb Cake! That was followed by 8.5% liking Certainly Celery, 8% liking Real Red, and 6% liking Rich Razzleberry!

As promised, I drew a name randomly from the comments and Wilda is the winner of the Blog CanDEE from the June Blog Hop. Wilda is a fellow Kraft lover - yeah! Here's what she wrote:
"Cool blog you have!!! I'd have to say kraft too although I think I use more Old Olive than anything, w/ the exception of white :)"
She's the lucky winner of the fabulous Top Notes in 30 retiring colors and 6 Kraft cards and Whisper White envelopes. Please contact me (deesignsbyninadee@gmail.com) within 48 hours to claim your prize! Don't forget to check the entire Blog Hop lineup to see if you've won!

In honor of Wilda, I created this card featuring her favorite colors:

Here are the DEEtails:

I started by punching 1 1/4" inch scallop squares and pulled out some goodies from my stash. I stamped one with a butterfly from my Flight of the Butterfly set, added some buttons from my Button Latte and Button Bouquet Designer Buttons set to another, tied a Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon to the third, and stamped the sentiment from my Great Friend set on the last one. I adhered each scallop square onto a 1 1/2" Kraft square, then centered them onto a 3 3/4" Old Olive square, added a Whisper White mat, and adhered it onto my Kraft card. Thanks for the inspiration, Wilda!
