Inspiration Challenge Reveal and Stamp Set WINNER!!

So - I had some fun making my card for this challenge.  That's because I got a good laugh at myself, and you will get to as well (on Thursday).  I made one card that turned out so ugly I couldn't bear for it to be the only one that I made for this inspiration challenge, even if it does get a good laugh out of everyone ;)  I will let you see it later this week, but for now, here's something that I don't think is ugly.  LOL

I ended up with this card, and am very pleased.  From the inspiration photo, which you can see HERE, I really drew from all of the white, the pop of color in the flowers on the table, and the squares/lines that are throughout the room.  I scored some criss-crossing lines on my card front, but kept it pretty CAS otherwise.  I inked my silhouette buds in Tempting Turqouise classic ink first, and then tapped it lightly into Lovely Lilac classic ink.

Stamps:  Pocket Silhouettes, Teeny Tiny Wishes   Paper:  Whisper White CS   Ink:  Tempting Turquoise and Lovely Lilac, Basic Black classic ink   Accessories:  Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals 
And now on to the winner of January's Stamp Set.  I decided that I would send the winner a brand new clear-mount I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.  This way, not only are you getting a free, brand new set, but together with this win, we will be giving $2 more to the Hatian relief funds that Stampin' Up! is donating with the sale of this stamp set.

Starting with the most recent challenge, B2S02, I numbered the participants beginning with #1 (you can see their submissions by clicking on each of their names). 

1.  Kris Sobolik
2.  Melissa Huie
3.  Trina Caraway
4.  Melissa Huie
5.  Chera Wiest

There were 6 of you, and random.org drew the following number:

#2 was Melissa!!  So, Melissa, get in touch with me via e-mail or SA and we'll talk stamps since I know you have the one I was going to give away.  :)
