My first exciting news this week

I am so thrilled to be the Guest DT for Card Patterns this week. I won this spot with this card. I've never been a guest DT before, so this is really exciting. Here's the sketch for this week.

I was so excited I made two cards. I used a beautiful floral digital image from The DigiShack store. For the first one, I colored the image with reinkers and use it as background paper. The curvy edge was sketched by me on the computer, then hand cut.

For the second one, I changed the color of the image to red using Microsoft Publisher, printed it on So Saffron cardstock and used it as a BG paper. I also printed out two stanzas of one of my favorite songs, a modern hymn called How Deep The Father's Love For Us (read the story behind the song here) by Stuart Townend. The words are just awesome.

I made this card to be doubled as a wall hanging by sliding a ribbon inside, as sampled here. I make this type of cards frequently and love receiving them too.
