{ Gallery Idol Finalist !!! }

The announcement was made today and I made the TOP 20 of Gallery Idol at Paper Crafts with so many other talented ladies, including some of my buddies from CMK. This is the card that got picked and I am so glad I made it last minute. I was leaving for PA the next day and came up with this idea for a card. The box from Paper Posies came with this cute American Crafts Paper. I made the butterfly with photo corners from Li'l Davis Designs. Painted them with Making Memories paint and added some brads for the body. I was playing around with the photo corners to use them as a design element on a page I was working on for IMCK DT and they turned into a butterfly. I have been in love with scalloped edge paper lately and I didn't have any. I have a Fiskars shape template that has that scalloped border and I just traced it on my card with a pencil and cut out.

The Gallery Idol continues with round 1 where we have to make a "Thanks" card by April 30, Monday. At noon that day first round of voting starts and based on the vote the top 15 will advance to round 2. So check it out and come and vote on Monday ROUND 1 I am really nervous since I am still here in Chambersburg, PA until Sunday night. I hope the sun comes out tomorrow for a great photo. I brought limited supplies with me to work on some other submissions that are due at the end of the month. I hope I have everything I need. There is a scrapbook store near by that I can go and visit :)

I wanted to thanks Lori W. for leaving a comment about the Offray Ribbon Outlet in Hagerstown. I will be going there today to check it out. I am waiting for my husband to get off work so we can go. I didn't feel like getting out of bed early this morning so he has the car. I slept through breakfast and all I have here are Twizzlers until dinner. First, I am going to the ribbon store and then dinner. Wow this is the longest post I ever made and I wanted to post another card for Splitcoast Card sketch challenge. I will do that later.

Now that I have more people stopping by I would love to give away some BLOG CANDY.
