Rejected

Hi Gang! Happy Sunday! Oh, I had such a good time at the Fiskars Fun Day in Cave City Kentucky yesterday. I love those Fisk-a-teers. Did you know that Fiskars is getting ready to celebrate their 360 birthday! Holy Cow they have been making tools for over 3 centuries! We made some really cute projects and of course Fiskars had some give aways. After the classes were completed they gathered all of the product used, border punches, shape punches, paper trimmers, etc... and gave it all away!! I walked away with a border punch that I ALMOST purched but did not and good thing 'cause I got it FREE!!!! I love that word. Okay, on to the card. This one was rejected from a submission I sent to a mag. The call was for cards finished inside and out. They also asked for cards with bold stripes. So I put the two together and this is what I came up with. I really like it and had a blast making it so I guess I cant be totally bummed that it did not get picked. AND it uses my fav color of the moment Raspberry Fizz, you guys know how much I love it. It also used PTI True Black patterned paper, cardstock and Stampers Select White. I cut out a flower from the Raspberry Fizz Mix patterned paper and added it as an embellishment on the inside. The thank you so much sentiment is from PTI Around and About set. That's it, I must finish cleaning the house, I am almost done. Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you enjoyed the card!
Cheers!
