Congratulations Banner Card

Good Morning!

I'm super excited to post today because of THIS post on the Papercraft Connection blog! Yes, you have to scroll through every single beautiful entry but there at the end is this card:

All products by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamps: Pennant Parade, Friendly Phrases
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Basic Black classic inks; Whisper White craft ink
Paper: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla, Island Indigo, Sahara Sand cardstock; Calypso Coral textured paper, Brights DSP, First Edition DSP
Accessories: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Boarder punch, White bakers twine; yellow bakers twine by Pink Paislee

Yahooo! I've made Papercrafts Gallery Idol 2011 top 20!

I scrolled through the list saying to myself "oh... there is no way I would have been picked- these are SO gorgeous and way out of my league... and there's a banner card so there you go." And then lol! There it was! Hee! I am so excited to be picked among this great group of artists! Now, I hope I can keep up with them!

This is my second year playing along- I made it all the way to the final week in 2009 and had SO much fun! I can't wait to see what the challenges will be!

I made the card last weekend and it has been a favorite color scheme for me this week. I made a real banner and a scrapbook page to match! I'll share them soon- I have my open house tomorrow and I want to let my friends coming see them first! If you are near Woodbridge, VA, please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to come!

Off to do the happy dance one more time! :)

Thanks for reading and have a great Friday!
