ABC layout using the Chomas Creations engraving tip

Oooh the things you can do with the Chomas Creations engraving tip and Core'dinations cardstock!  I'm having a blast with the new kraft-core Core'dinations (as some of you that follow my blog may know!), so this is right up my alley! 
The kraft-core comes in a 24 pack, and the core is the kraft, so when you engrave with the Chomas Creations engraving tip for the Cricut that is what shows through!  Keep reading for your chance to win some, and a Chomas Creations engraving tip, woohooo!
I used the pressure on 5 and double cut, then used a brillo pad to gently sand the surface.
I used the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder with black metallic mini gel pen to draw the journaling lines.  You can get more info and the download here... journaling circles

I cut some letters the same size as the engraved ones and added them to the page, along with some ribbon.  Pretty simple page, but doesn't look it!

I would love to win the engraving tip to add some lettering and style to my scrapbooking with some color core dinations paper. Just went to a crop and learned how to emboss! Being able to put perfect looking lettering on my pages with the cricut took would be excellent! Thanks for the chance to win!
