Hello friends and happy day-before World Card Making Day! Today, all the winners from last year's WCMD have joined in a blog hop to celebrate this very special occasion. I will never forget the wonderful surprise it was to open my email one night and find an email from Holy letting me know I was one of the winners! I screamed out so loud it freaked out my husband and son. Oh yeah, and the neighbours too :)
I had entered a few cards, but the most surprising thing was that the winner card was one with no stamping on it. No even the sentiments. I am mostly a stamper but when I created this particular card, I decided to stretch out of my comfort zone. I ventured the path of electronic die cutting and stickers. However, it still was a "me" card. It had bright colors and an overall clean and graphic feel.
With this, my friends, what I try to say is that you can be true to yourself and try new things at the same time. It worked for me :)
Here's today's card...
I wanted to make a card in the same fashion as the winner one: a floral die cut design and a simple sentiment. No embellishments. So the white pannel was die cut, and I adhered colored cardstock behind the open areas inside the flowers. This time, though, I stamped the sentiment instead of using stickers.
And there you go! Here's the complete blog hop list. It was such a honor to see my name beside such talented ladies! I still can't believe it... Thanks for stopping by!
