Chance at Redemption?

Hello, crafty bloggers! I often ramble on with my blog posts, but I'm going to make this brief...for me, at least. Ha! The card I am sharing with you today is a magazine submission reject. It was one of two cards I submitted to a magazine for my very first time, and I was soooo excited, but alas, I didn't make it. I've been hoping for the perfect chance to share this card, and then The Play Date Cafe posted their next challenge. Oh, my goodness! It's perfect! Check out this inspiration photo:


It is the exact color scheme and theme of my card! I can't stand it! I'm so excited, I just have to show you the card now!



This is one of my all-time favorite cards that I have made, so let's hope it brings me luck for my first ever challenge win! *fingers crossed* Wish me luck! Hopefully, this magazine reject will bring redemption!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy crafting!

What a fun card, Amy!!! So sorry it didn't get published, but the magazine's loss is definitely The Cafe's gain!!!
