A top 3 award and Guest Designer spot!!

I feel so ashamed to have entered a challenge and not have had the time to even check to see which fabulous entries won….this was what happened with the fabulous Inkspirational Card Challenge.

I had entered the card I made for my little boy's 3rd Birthday as seen below, but never dreamed that it would be chosen as a top three winner!! To me it was too much of a personal one - but in fact, that was exactly the reason why it was chosen!!! It was not until the lovely Carol told me that I had been selected that I remembered to take a look back at the blog…..shocking!!!!!

How even more embarrassing to then receive an email to say I had been selected out of the top three to be a Guest designer!!!!!!!! So, with my design brief in hand, I decided I had to create something extra special. I decided also that it was about time I took some inspiration from Carol and create my very first shaker card!!!! I mean, come on, I LOVE my bling on a card so why I have not made a shaker card yet it utterly beyond me!!!

Now I can't show you my full card yet, but I can show you a wee sneak preview….so here it is… watch out for my Guest Designer appearance soon on Inkspirational Card Challenge. I will also put a post on here in order to tell you a bot more about the thinking/story behind this card. 

As always, any thoughts, comments, suggestions always very much appreciated.

  1. *fist pump* and cheering on your win, Laura! The 'personality' of your card shone through every detail, and those heartshaped balloons...irresistibly adorable! Well-deserved win! This sneak peek certainly has caught my interest; excited to see the dazzling, sparkling delight in its full edition! Shaker card already amps up my attention!! Hugs~c
