You win some, you lose some...

I just got an email on Friday that my FIRST ever card will be published in Paper Crafts Magazine!  Actually, it's my first ever published card EVER!  I did submit 3 for their special "Go To Sketches" call.  Amber is having a great blog hop showcasing cards from your "reject" pile.  I loved this one when I made it, but sadly it ended up with a different fate than my published one.  Into the closet it goes, but not before I share it here first:

 For Sketch #31:
Here is my Snorkel Dude card:


That little snorkel dude and the cool sentiment are from A Muse.  The beautiful blue Bermuda and Ocean cardstock is from their new A Muse Studio line.  I was lucky to be asked in the fall by none other than Julie Ebersole and Heather Meeson to help out with products from their new A Muse Studio line, which was great fun!  I finally can use some of the huge pile of loot that they graciously sent, it's been hard keeping all of that cute stuff tucked away!

This is a really great take on the sketch. Those circles always did remind me of bubbles. This is colorful and creative. Would have been a great one for the magazine. Congrats on the other card though. Can't wait to see it.
