The biggest risk is trying...

Stampin Up's My Digital recently had a contest. You had to submit one scrap page and one card.  Seriously one of each? It was extremely hard to complete that task cause I could not choose just ONE.  So here are the page and card that I went with.  I thought that I messed up the emailing part of my email entries and who knows if it got there correctly. But I tried and that alone was a BIG risk for me to take. 
I really love this picture of my daughter and I wanted to showcased it. I used the Pocketful of Posies DSP, Vintage background, and the Hello Doily stamp image. The background photo was done using a larger photo box with less opacity. I have been saving this page for awhile when I decided to use it for the contest.

As for the card, I was inspired by a Christmas photocard that I was working on. It is a 5x5 card. The outside of the card are the yellow parts and the inside are the white parts.  I used Artistic Etchings stamp image, Merry and Type stamp image, Come to Bethlehem stamp image and Greenhouse Gala DSP.  I love the yellow and basic gray color combo for a new twist of holiday color.  I will get some printed of these thru SU for the holidays too.
Now as for the finalists in the contest...their stuff blew me away! I bet those judges had a tough time with all the wonderful entries this year.  Heather, Rochelle and my friend Jeanna from the MDS Blog Hop Designers made it.  AWESOME!!! You can see their entries and vote on them here:  VOTE   Voting ends November 4th so go vote now!
