thank you!

Thank you so much for everyone who follows my blog and voted for me in the Paper Crafts Card Idol contest! I made it on to the next round! The theme this time is monochromatic cards (all one color). Voting has started and you'll have until Thursday at noon to vote for your favorite card and then 10 of the 15 people will move on to the next round!

Here is the link to see all of the cards: Monochromatic cards
Here is the link to my card: Snowflake card "Baby It's Cold Outside"
(To vote, click on my card and underneath you will see "to vote for your favorite, click here".)

I chose to go with white, not so sure if that was a smart move or not! It was so difficult to get a good photo of this card. I used 2 pieces of Maya Road sheer snowflakes and tied them together to make a card. I added a resin frame, chipboard letters, chipboard snowflake, ribbon, and rub ons by Melissa Frances. I also added some "snow" on the top of the snowflakes with white paint and glitter which it's a little hard to tell in the photos.



Thank you so much for your support! I'm having a lot of fun with this contest and pushing my creativity. I've never made a monochromatic card before!

Here are a couple of cards I made for an on-line magazine called Scrapbook News and Review. They wrote to me a month or two ago and asked if I would do an article about myself with 2 unique cards just for their magazine and here is what I came up with. This one is made with SEI's Chick-a-Dee line and a Melissa Frances rub on, chipboard flower and resin frame.
The Lazy Days of Summer was made with some Pink Paislee Spring Fling papers, a Riff Raff chipboard butterfly, a Melissa Frances rub on and chipboard flower and the little sun is from a piece of Sassafras Lass paper.
Wishing you a happy day today! Thanks for visiting me! Hugs! ~Danielle~
