OCC 1,2,3,4! (and some exciting news!)

Yay...another weekend! All of us at Our Creative Corner have a great challenge for you all this week! Kristin Tierney, our host, came up with the "1, 2, 3, 4 Challenge." The recipe is as follows:

1 Patterned Paper
2 Layers
3 Different Stamps
4 Non-Paper Embellishments

The embellishments can all be different, or 4 of the same type. For my card, I chose to use only buttons as my embellishments. I also used the patterned cardstock as my card base. I love those 2 leaf stamps on my card- I bought them a long time ago, and they just now saw ink for the first time! The third stamp is my sentiment.

I definitely struggled a bit with this challenge, but love the result! I'm looking forward to seeing what crafty cards you come up with!



Please check out the other cards from the DT and link up at Our Creative Corner!

Now for some great news.....
I (along with many, many other cardmakers) submitted to the Paper Crafts Magazine's Go-To Sketches for Cardmakers call. It was my first submission, and of the 3 cards I made, one of them was chosen! I know that some of you out there have been published bunches of times, but for me this is a really exciting moment!

Now, I can't get too excited just yet. Part of me is still worried that something will go wrong along the way (I spill something on my card before mailing it out, it gets lost/destroyed in the mail, the wonderful people at Paper Crafts change their mind, etc....) So I won't truly believe it until it is printed and in my hands! Until then, I will just have to wait patiently....

This is such a fun card! I love the nontraditional shape and the contrast of the full color leaf image with the outline image.

Congrats on your first publication acceptance! I just got my happy email for my first acceptance yesterday, too, and I know exactly what you mean about being a little worried that something will go wrong before August gets here! But what an exciting day! I can't wait to see your card in print!
