Hello Sunshine

This is a card I made a while back for a PaperCraft submission.  It is based on this sketch:
Here is the card I made:
I used lots of Fall colors on this one as it was for a Fall submission.  This was the first time I rolled twine for the center of a flower too.  It very easy to do using scortape.  The ricrack is impressed with the linen impression plate and I used Distressed dot paper for the flowers.  I am looking forward to seeing the magazine when it comes out to see which one was chosen.  I am still plugging away, trying to get something published.  I do believe it will happen one day.  PATIENCE.  I keep telling myself that.
