My First Published Cards

Hey, everyone! Hope your week is going well...just a few more days 'til the weekend!

I wanted to share one of the cards I had published in the January 2010 issue of CARDS magazine. I'm really excited because these are my first publications ever! After lots of rejection (before and since), it's nice to finally see my work in print.

You can see my other card in this post.

Happy Wednesday!

Paper: Real Red, PTI white, Bazzill Swiss Dot
Accessories: SU rub-on, Martha Stewart snowflake punch & scallop dot border punch, SU corner rounder punch, Kaisercraft pearls

Congrats Ann! This card is fabulous. Love how you used the snowflakes and pearls. What a great idea to use the border punch and add the sentiment to that piece. Thanks for the inspiration.

YEAH! WAY TO GO!!!!! So what's the secret to getting published then?! I'm considering having a go but unsure if CARDS takes overseas submissions...totally psyched for the rejection though ;D
Oh and this card - Warm Winterland Perfection with that splash of red!
