*Sweet Monday* to you!
Well, I decided to enter my cardmaking skills into the Paper Crafts Gallery Card Idol contest again this year and made it into the top 20 out of about 800 people! Last year I made it into the top 5 and then Valerie Salmon was awarded the grand prize (rightfully so...her card was totally off-the-hook amazing!). So....here I go again, entering this little contest! I'd love it if you could come on over and vote! The theme this time was "SCALLOPS" and boy is it fun to see all the different ways the ladies used scallops on their cards! The top 15 with the most votes will move on to the next round.
Here is the link to see all of the cards (mine is under my name: DanielleFlanders): Card Idol "Scallops" gallery
and here is the link to vote! VOTE here
(I believe you can only vote once this time per computer.) I'll tell you a little bit about my card....
When I think of scallops, I think of girly and happy! So I decided on a pink and green color scheme and used the quote "Be glad" on the front of the card. I used two pages from a chipboard tree album and covered with paper, then cut scalloped strips for the tree trunk and limbs with my scalloped scissors. Added scallops to the bird's wing and inside page too. Also stitched around the scallops on the tree top. The inside quote says, "It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your (heart)."
Here are some photos of the card I entered, you can click on them to see them in more detail!
