First Publication!

Late last year I got that email that I had been hoping to receive for months:  my first publication acceptance.




It was from Paige Evans at Cards, and here is my card in print in the May issue!

I created the flower element by layering a Punky Sprouts doily, with four Punky Sprouts Lil' Parchment Blossoms that were folded into quarters with one edge folded back, a crocheted flower, Teresa Collins button, and Twinery Twine.

The sentiment is one of my favorite Verve Plain Janes, and the patterned paper is from GCD Studios.

I'm very happy to report that I have a number of other cards that will be published this year, but the first one will always have a special place in my heart. 

Hope that you are having a great week!
