Hi there! Today I'm sharing a card that I had made a while back to enter for publication. It didn't make the cut, but I still really like it... I kind of wish I hadn't sent it in because I kind of miss this card. *giggle* It has a lot of neat texture and a lot of glam without being too over the top and would have made a fabulous birthday card for a girly girl. :)
I haven't had any success with being published yet, and honestly, it is such a tough process! I am such a sucker for instant gratification, that often, when I think a card is a possible entry for publication, I just want to show it to all of you right away! And of course I do, so then I miss out on my chance to enter it for publication. Heehee!
Do any of you have any publication secrets for success? I'd love to hear! Please do share! :)
Here are the DEEtails for my card:
I started with a Going Gray card and layered on some Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray. I stamped a portion of the Just For You sentiment from SU!'s Afterthoughts and embossed it. Then I layered on the embellishments - an MS doily with a PTI Dress Form die cut in Basic Gray and layered with some pink satin (love that part!), some pleated Pretty in Pink Taffeta ribbon and a glittery swirl from my stash. Love!
