CARDS Magazine - Published!

Hi friends! Just wanted to share a bit of joy with you today: I have been published!

Two of my cards are included in the April edition of CARDS magazine and I couldn't be happier... so excited to share them with you today.
Both cards feature the Crate Paper Recollection line of patterned papers... so beautiful and rich.

Mixing patterns and a scalloped edge gives this card a bit of an eclectic feel. I added the tag at an angle and stamped it with the hot air ballon from the Stampin' Up! Sweet Treats set. For some texture, I used a scallop felt matte for my balloon, a few buttons tied with twine, and a crochet flower... all simple details that work together to complement the vintage-esque patterns in the paper.

I think this is a modern-day baby card... perfect for a modern mommy. Rich floral prints, off-set scallops, and a paper-pieced buggy that steals the spotlight. The buttons (especially the "wheels") make me smile.

To see these in CARDS magazine is a dream come true. Thanks so much to all of YOU for your support and sweet sentiments throughout this journey! I plan to continue the celebration tomorrow with BLOG CANDY! ;)
