Gallery Idol Top 15

Hi peeps! Yay... I am happy and grateful to announce that I made it to Paper Craft Gallery Idol Top 15! Soooo happy. My goodness, I was so anxious and nervous. All the ladies are talented and I have followed some of them for this past year, some were last year finalist, so understandable many times I feel like I am going to pass out when I think of having my card along side them.

Even now, I feel like my heart just beating like crazy. For all of you who are rooting for me, THANK YOU! If I could hug each of you, I would. :) I couldn't have done this without your support. I appreciate each one of you with all my heart!

The amazing thing was how supportive all of us of each other. Seriously, we're all cheering on each other. These girls are simply awesome. They made me laugh, encourage me in my creativity edeavor, and more. All I can say, I am honored, proud, humble to be among them.

And, today the Top 15 also get featured on Cath's Moxie Fab World.  It's one of my favorite blog and it's definitely a must check blog if you're into card making. There's always tons of inspiration there. This whole experience has been such a dream come true for me.

Last night, to calm myself down, I played with one of my fave stamp. What else... The Hero Arts poppy stamp, of course. :) And the flutterbies from HA digi stamp. I am still playing the Hero Arts color layering challenge. I cut a circle from a cardstock and use it as a mask. Stamped the antique words and the poppies, colored the inside with chalks and then added the butterfly.


I think this card really convey CAS style. Everybody has different style. What about you? What kind of style or cards that inspires you when you're browsing around? Please share your thought. For the next round of Gallery Idol we have to make masculine card using something we find in the garage. Hmmm... hubby is helping me brainstorming for ideas. We both work for home builder, so surely I can find something to use, right?? ;)

Oh, since I have many things to be grateful for, please check back here this weekend. I'll be posting some blog candy. I've been cleaning my room and gather quite a bit of supplies. Again thank you all for making my day, weeks, months by your support. Love you all. Wishing you a super duper happy Friday and may your weekend be filled with lots of fun goodness. Hugs, Vera.

I am SO, SO happy for you, Vera! Love the CAS card you made too. My style leans towards CAS though I appreciate the vintage & collage cards that some people do so well. I just don't have a knack for them.

That's fantastic, Vera! Congrats! My card style is definitely distressed, organized chaos. I love combining textures, colors, and unusual elements to create. I love going to antique stores and finding vintage papers and laces.
