Gallery Idol, second time around

It's a good day to stay at home and make cards. Wind, a bit of rain, and more wind. So that's what I did. It's possible to make three cards for the Open Auditions Round of Gallery Idol, and the card I made today is my second. The pings are banging around in my head...too many of them. It took a while for me to get this one just right due to the "oh! I could use this, or oooh, I need to use that paper, or hey! what about this embelli?" And just when I was finished and putting all my supplies away, I dropped a girl figure onto the card. It was perfect (at least in my mind...). So here's my card:


This was really fun to make -- or maybe it was just the caffeine buzz...Anyway, I like it. Sure hope the folks who choose who goes onto the 1st round do as well. This will go to a granddaughter who turns 13 in September. She's a crafter, so she'll enjoy it almost as much as the fundage that grandma will tuck inside. lol. Bazzill white card base, and the rest of the papers are once again, scraps (gotta love that!). Some foam stickers from American Crafts, a Studio Calico wood veneer chick, and all of the buttons are from Simple Stories Sn@p Studio. Hope all is well with you folks, and today take some time for a happy dance.

Love it - great colours and graphic shapes. Love the brads and the strips of striped paper! I have to figure out which one is your first one - I'm so behind this week due to lots of 'outside the house' activities (I do try to leave from time to time! lol!

Wow x 100...

This is exactly the kind of cards that are always featured in the Papercrafts magazine! Seriously, you have blown this happy birthday challenge clear out of the water girl! The details are awesome...like the wee snippet of striped paper in the top corner and the star sticker/brad. But that little wooden chic, well she totally steals the show!

Absolutely unbelievably creative!

Very cool card! This is so on trend with the flair and the potty people wood veneer. I love the colors and the fun patterns you've combined! Good luck with the Gallery Idol!
