Wishing you Everything Wonderful....and some exciting news!!!

Hello all my friends out there in blog land! I have the most exciting news to share with you.


I've been sitting on this secret since February and have nearly spilled the beans on more than one occasion!!! I have been asked to join the DT at Mo's Digital Pencil and I'm honored that they thought well enough of my work to consider me! Thank you so much Mo, Pat and Dorcus and a big waving hellooooo to my new DT sisters! So here we go with my first official card for the DT .

For my card today I've created a birthday card that is quite different for me in the fact that it's not my typical square card. I saw this idea on Julie Price's blog here and wanted to CASE it. Thanks Julie for your inspiration!

So here is what I came up with...

I took the above picture on a mirror because I really like the reflection of the card and the peek at the inside. But below is a view of the front of the card just on my drape.

And now for a closer look at this little Miss to see how I colored her...

The inside is finished with a computer generated sentiment and a small salutation panel.

Finally, here is an angled view just for the fun of it...

Card recipe:

DP - Magnolia
CS - SU Night of Navy and Mellow Moss
Image - Make a Wish by Mo's Digital Pencil
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Swirls - Magnolia Heart Swirl
Leaves - Marianne Leaf Die
Stardust Stickles
Pearls from Stash
Copic Markers
Distress Inks
Spellbinder Classic Circle Dies, Scalloped Die and Fancy Labels Dies

Thanks so much for letting me share my BIG news with you and for taking the time out of your busy lives to come and share your thoughts with me!
