Born to Be Wild Card

Hi everyone,

Popping in today for a quick publication share. This card was featured in Paper Crafts March /April issue in the 'Animals to Welcome Baby' section. Here it is:


Besides the ribbon, this card was made entirely with my Silhouette diecutting machine

Supplies:

I also wanted to share that I have a card featured over at the Moxie Fab World blog this week: my World Card Making Day win in the Love category! When I decided to send in some cards for this contest I think I made 1 or 2 new cards and then went through a number of publication rejects to add to the package. I basically added anything that fit one of the 5 categories, that hadn't been blogged, and that I didn't think was hideous. I think that narrowed it down to about 8. Ha! The card that they picked as a winner was the last one that I added... the one that I wasn't sure about. I was so unsure about it in fact that when I found out it was a winner I had to email Susan R. Opel and ask just what it was that drew the judges to that card. You know what she said? It had subway art, used washi tape, and had no pink. Basically the fact that it wasn't a traditional 'love' card. :) Moral of the story is: When in doubt submit it! :)

Here are the supplies I used for my winning card;


Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a great weekend!

Congrats on your World Cardmaking Day win! I think your design is pretty great and I'm glad to hear that you went ahead and submitted it! Men everywhere will be happy that there are valentine's and love cards that aren't pink out there!!!
