Great news X 2

I have two very exciting things to share today....

First up....


I was thrilled to be asked by Paulina Nakamura of Pretty Pink Posh to join her design team!
I've loved being on Paulina's 10 Minute Craft Dash DT for the past six months.
While I was saddened by the fact that she won't be continuing with the Craft Dash Challenges,
I was happy when she asked me to be on the DT for her shop!
She's awesome and I'm super glad to be able to keep working with her!

Here are the rest of the PPP designers:


Paulina has the sweetest embellishments in her shop, including this fabulous kit,
some of which I used on today's card.


Here's my card:


I was inspired by the card that Ashley made for this week's Make It Monday.
I loved how she added the sequins to her tree, so I decided to create a card using the same technique.
(Note: I also used her Angled Backgrounds technique,
so I'm linking this card up to this week's Make It Monday.)
I used PTI's Mighty Oak cover plate to die cut my tree, with some SSS woodgrain card stock.
The sentiment is from PTI's Happy Trails.
The patterned paper is Fancy Pants' Beloved.
And, like I said before, the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh. :)

I'm also super excited & honoured to be asked to be a
Featured Artist/Designer on the Paper Crafter's Library!
Here's a peek of the card that I have featured there today...

  
Please hop on over to the Paper Crafter's Library to check out my post.

Thanks for looking!
