My Winning Artisan Entry - Day 1


Here we GO! This is SO EXCITING! You just came from Cathy's on our first day of showcasing our Artisan Entry projects!  Over the next ten days, the Artisan Design Team will be sharing all 10 of our winning entries!
I am going to begin with the card that started it all! It was the first entry I created. I wanted to use some bling bling as a challenge and silver/champagne glimmer paper with vintage faceted designer buttons is the perfect fit!  I colored 2 of the silver paper strips with Summer Starfruit ink with the Aqua Painter to get the gold coloring. The sentiment is embossed in clear over black craft ink.
The inside of the envelope flap is a black and white photo of my daughter Megan printed on Whisper White cardstock thru MDS. You could not see this on the display boards at Convention - you got to see the envelope glimmer paper side only.
 
Now continue to hop along to Connie's blog! That woman is amazing at all she does!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Hope this inspired you today!
