Stamp TV - Mix It Up Monday - My Sketch





It is my Mix It Up Monday Challenge this week and I have a sketch for you!   I find it so much easier to make a card if I have a sketch as my first step. Here is the sketch:


and, here is my card:
 I used the beautiful butterfly from GKD Bold and Beautiful, along with the bigger, fun sentiment from Whimsical Wishes.  Do you like my papers? I'm am so in heaven with these dots and stripes from the new Echo Park Dots & Stripes paper!  Totally my favorite combo. I sure hope you come over to Stamp TV and play in my challenge - you could be the winner of a stamp set up to $24.95.



On a side note, I wanted to share my excitement with you -- I have OFFICIALLY been PUBLISHED!  Check it out:
 Do you see that!  My NAME AND CARD in Card Maker Magazine!!!  Oh I can't tell you how thrilled I am!  My first published card!!  [The title "Congratulations" seems very appropriate :)] Want to receive a copy of this magazine?
Well, I happen to have an extra copy and in celebration of my "first publication", I will mail it to the random drawn winner!!  Just leave me a comment why you like this magazine - haven't seen Card Maker before? - well just say you want to check it out!  I'll be picking the random winner when I get back from Chicago on Sunday July 24th~  Oh how fun :)

Thanks for stopping by~

Beautiful card! I have seen Cardmaker before, but not sure if I've purchased one. Would love to win one so I could see what I'm missing! Thanks for the opportunity.

When I read your message about being published I was smiling from ear to ear ( just like when someone wins money or a new car on TV and you don't even know them and you can't help but be happy for them.) well like that. Anyways, It couldn't happen to a better person. Congrats!!!!
