My First Ever Published Card

Since the November/December issue of PaperCrafts magazine is out, I can finally show you the very first card I have ever published (it's on page 23). It was the only one I submitted for this particular issue and I was so thrilled when I received the acceptance email.

I made this card using gifts from my generous friends and finds from my travels. The patterned paper was sent by my friend, Doris (Thanks, Doris). The crocheted flower was a gift form Lisa (Thanks, my dear friend). The smaller pearls were from my mom (I can't thank you enough, Mom). I found the pearls in Israel last year, the button I bought here in Croatia, and the lace is from my home country, the Philippines.



Stamps: Trendy Trees Ink: Ruby Red Papers: Bailey Collection from K&Co., Old Olive, Ruby Red Others: lace, pearls, buttons, crocheted flower, CB Swiss Dots

On another note, have you read Gina's blog today? She just announced her newest illustrator. It's the lovely Tami Mayberry of the CPS sketch blog fame. I can't tell you how honored I am to be designing alongside her. And she's starting with a bang with her first release next week. You can see a snippet at Gina's blog.

Oh, and make sure you participate at the Color Throwdown's challenge this week. GinaK Designs is the sponsor and there are 2 prizes up for grabs. One of them is the Signs of Autumn StampTV kit. The other prize is Asela's Christmas Blessings set. How fun!
