Pat On The Back

Good news today: I got an acceptance e-mail from Paper Crafts magazine!

One of my cards that I submitted was accepted for publication and you should be able to see it this August in the Go-to Sketches for Card Makers Special Issue. {It hits the shelves the day after my birthday!}

This card {one of my many "rejects"} was also created using the same sketch from my card that was accepted {sketch #33} - it looks very, VERY different from the card that was accepted. They are totally different styles but I love them both in their own little ways.
{You can see all the sketches for the call here.}

There is lots of goodness from For The Record {one of the new Echo Park Paper collections}.

Of course I've also added some twine from The Twinery - love that new charcoal color! {I inked it up with some Distress Ink to make it flow better with the colors of the card.}

I got some of my inspiration for this card from the recent Get Daring with Decorative Tape Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I used the Tim Holtz tissue tape to add some ruffles behind the sentiment and beneath the twine.

Thanks for stopping by!
