Celebrating Good News

Hello all,

Long time no post! If you want to know what I have been up to go to my other post 'Peacock Plume Trio'. This simple sketch really intrigued me to create a card full of celebration (I'll get to that later!). With that said, I am entering Creative with Stamps and CAS Colours & Sketches. Here is my card, enjoy!

The gray stripe was placed to anchor the sentiment. Banners were die-cut the same color as the background. I thought it added a bit of texture and interest.
Left/Below: The detailed shot of all the elements on the card.
 Right/Bottom: The balloons were pressed into Distress Ink and then die-cut.
The sentiment was created the using the same technique. 

CAS Colours & Sketches: Challenge #233
Creative with Stamps: Challenge #16- Celebrate

So, I told you I had good news. Well, one of my cards has been published in 'Craft Stamper magazine' July issue! Here is a pic of the cover. I was overwhelmed and humbled to be chosen as one of the artists for their 'Take It Make It Challenge'! Well that is my news!! Wahoo! For those of us in the U.S.A. we don't get this magazine so I will show you the card that was published

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

First of all, congratulations on being published! I wish that I could buy the magazine but the card looks stunning! I didn't know that you worked at Michaels - that's so cool (one of my guilty pleasures is to go there). I know the kids really had a great time learning from your creativity. So glad you're back in your craft room because I missed you, my friend. I hope we can get together soon!!
