Last night when I was skimming through my favorite blogs via Google Reader, I came across a *fabulous* creation by Debbie Olsen of Thinking Inking. She is one of the best of the BEST and her creations always make my jaw drop. This time it was not only her lovely floral birthday card that caught my eye, but her terrific sketch and a chance for publication in CARDS magazine!!!
I told you it was a *great* sketch!
Debbie said all we had to do was create a card using the sketch and link it to the post on the Cosmo Cricket Blog by August 27th. Then the editors of CARDS magazine will select a winner for publication. Cool beans! I've always wanted to submit one of my cards for publication, but I never have. It would be a dream come true to be published and this time I knew I should give it a try!
Here is my submission . . .
[I wish my lighting was better and will try to retake the photo in daylight tomorrow.]
The darling little Pure Innocence set is from My Favorite Things. I've used so saffron cardstock for the base and tangerine tango for layering the image and tag. The bright and happy designer paper is by Cosmo Cricket. I've colored the image with Copic markers, paper pieced her dress, and used buttons, twine and ribbon from my stash to embellish.
This is the inside. . .
It was a fun card to make and I hope you like it. Well, actually I hope the editors at CARDS like it more! hee hee ;)
