Published Cards

Just sharing my two published cards over CARDS magazine (May 2013 issue) and one from Paper Crafts (May/June issue).

Some of you may have seen this card in my blog before. I submitted to CARD for the honey comb category and luckily, it was selected for publication. I love how they photograph this card!
CARDS (May 2013) Honey comb
Notice the background? They used of a textured candle and a neon box for the photo shoot? Swoon!
The 2nd card is a Grad card
I let the stamps and SRM Stickers do the talking...
CARDS magazine ( May 2013) Grad
 And last but not least, it was this card in Paper Crafts (May/June 2013)
 hello beautiful
Here is the look of the magazine
Well, today's post is definitely the highlight of my card-making. And now with the latest Gallery Idol (details here) , I am so pleased and humbled! Thank you for your unwavering support and positive feedback!
Please come back on Monday for my next Gallery Idol "Make Your Own Stamped Background" entry! You'll do the "background check"!!
