PC-Gallery Idol 2011

Hey all--It's been a while since my last post.  My computer has been 'sick' with viruses......12 viruses in the last 6 weeks!  I've been able to put a band-aid on the problems for the time being and I am expecting a new laptop in the next week or there is light at the end of the tunnel as they say.

Are you familiar with Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2011 competition?  If not, it's an annual competition where there are 5 rounds.  The open audition consists of creating and posting a 'Congratulations' card.  The PC editors will choose 20 designers (out of over 1300 submissions at last count!) to move onto the next round.  For the remaining rounds, the PC gals will announce the theme of the next round and so on until one lucky designer is chosen as the Gallery Idol.  Paper Crafts is giving away some really fantastic prizes throughout the competition.  Sooooooo, I'm throwing my hat in the ring.  Below is my first creation. 

Supplies used:  Cardstock-kraft from Bazzill,
Patterned paper from K & Co. & October Afternoon,
Specialty Paper from The Paper Co. (mirror paper),
Embellishments from October Afternoon & Joanns.
 This is suppose to be a clipboard sitting on a desk.  I drew the 'clip' part of the clipboard freehand and added eyelets-I think it turned out pretty good! :)  I printed the sentiment on scratch paper and held it in place with a paper clip, twine and a badge.  This really was a fun card to put together.

I encourage everyone to participate -- you can't win if you don't try. (click here for the details) So, I'm off to make another Congrats card to submit.  I'm going to try and stop at 2 cards, but who knows!

Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment if you are so inclined-I love to hear from you!
