I am finally getting around to posting more pictures from the CKC event and now have a grand announcement to make. I entered the Paper Crafts Magazine Card Contest on a lark and...
I ACTUALLY WON 2nd PLACE !
A friend dared me to enter one of the sponsor's contest and so the day before CKC I decided I had time to make a card to enter. I was so surprised and thrilled to have won. My prize was a large stack of CK and Paper Crafts Magazine Books on card making, all of which I didn't already own so I was happy to have them. Pretty good for someone who never really makes cards. And, CK said that there was a very good chance my card would be published in the Papercrafts Magazine later this year, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
To make the card, I used mostly the new Making Memories Noteworthy line (pp, ribbons, velvet letters), Bazzill cardstock, a Jenni Bowlin chipboard frame, a Studio G Marah Johnson stamp, Cats Eye and Stazon Inks, Making Memories shimmer glitter, plus some adorable pearl embellishments. It is hard to tell in the picture put the frame is pop dotted to stand out around the stamped image in the middle.
So without further ado, here are the pictures of the winning card and me with the prize package!
