Published!!!

Morning All!

I've got some very exciting personal news to share with all of my friends and visitors. I've been keeping this news quiet for a couple of weeks now and I'm ready to bust at the seams...so here goes, I've been published in the brand new magazine Just Invitations!!! I still can't quite believe it!

I made a wedding invitation using some of my Layers of Color stamps and Laura, the artist and owner of LOC, encouraged me to submit it for consideration in the new invitation only edition of Just Cards! magazine. I can't thank Laura enough for ALL of her support and believing in my art! She gave me that push I needed to finally submit my work for consideration. Now, all I can say is if you've ever wanted to submit your work to a magazine or for a design call, DO IT!! Believe in yourself and give it a try. :)

So here it is, my Rose Heart Wedding Invitaion....

I made this invite from a template I designed for the invitations I made for my aunt's wedding. The colors are Black, River Rock, and White. I ran the white pieces through the Cuttlebug using the Flowers embossing folder. The pretty rose heart image is one Laura designed for the Layers of Color Signature Art Stamps product line. The final embellishments are gold eyelets and organdy ribbon.

I's also like to share that I've been given an artwork gallery on the Layers of Color website. This gallery is a showcase of all the cards and paper art I've created using Layers of Color stamps. There you can also see the inside of this invite and the matching reply card. I hope you'll visit my new gallery and also visit the fabulously talented design team galleries! Laura was also published in this first issue of Just Invitations! Woo Hoo Laura!!

Thanks for letting me share my news with you today! Have a wonderful day and happy stamping!! :)
