I've chosen this time to start the contest to celebrate my best friend's (you know who you are :-) ) and my dear daughter 's birthday!!!
***** What is the prize: A custom handmade bridal bouquet as seen in the photo below - my best selling last season in the SHABBY ELEGANCE line. (This is currently priced at $125 in my etsy shop : http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=32389599). The ribbon to wrap the handle can be changed to match your colour scheme. Depended on your colours, I can also add matching colour feathers or skeleton leaves but you need to confirm the colour availabilities. Simply convo me on Etsy or Folksy. I will need 4 weeks since the winner is announced to make your bouquet, and I ship your prize from the UK, so please allow time for it to arrive :-). There will be only one winner. The winner will be entitled to a 20% off if she/he wishes to order any matching items for the bouquet (second picture below - My SHABBY ELEGANCE collection)
*****What if I am not the winner: Second and third runner-ups will get small surprise presents. All others still can benefit from this giveway. I offer 15% discount in my etsy and folksy shops for everyone who enter this contest. This offer is available with any purchase from my etsy / folksy shops from 28th October 2009 to 12nd November 2009 including items in my sale and instructions/ebooks sections. Convo me on Etsy / folksy and provide the link to show you participated in the contest, and let me know what you want to buy, I'll revise the listing with reduced price for you.
