PaperCrafts Gallery Idol 2013 - Top 20!

I don't typically make 2 posts in one day but I wanted to share some fun and exciting news. On a whim I decided I was going to enter 3 cards in the Open Auditions for the PaperCrafts Gallery 2013 Idol Competition and... I made the Top 20! I didn't realize that (for the open auditions round) it was permissible to share the cards publicly so I uploaded them to the Flickr Gallery and never even mentioned it. I thought I'd take a minute to share the 3 cards I uploaded.


This is the card that won me a Top 20 spot!


Die Cuts from the Silhouette Store • Sentiment from My Favorite Things - Birthday Greetings


And these are the two other entries I created. The theme was Birthday Cards for Kids & Teens. The winning card was my favorite of the three I made and I had a gut feeling IF one of my cards was chosen that would be the one.


Kite & Sentiment  from OWH Hero Arts - Right At Home & Year Round Sentiments
Papers from Stampin Up - Print Poetry
Stamps from Inky Antics - Beneton AviatorDie • Cloud Dies from Papertrey Ink 
I guess, for at least one more round ... the fun continues! Next up is cards for Dad. I have some serious thinking to do for this one. I don't think I'll be able to share future entries here (detail and rules are still to come) but if you keep an eye out on the PaperCrafts Gallery Idol Contest you might be able to pick off my design style among all the fabulous entries.

Happy Crafting!

Awesome Paula! The first card is my favorite as well because it is so bright and age appropriate (and for such a difficult age group, too!) Congratulations! Winning is so fun!!

Speaking of winning...my Memorial Day Bloghop Candy arrived today and I am tickled pink - the MFT stamps were a total surprise and I love them! I have always liked the headless lady but have never purchased any - I think some paper piecing may be in order. Thanks again, and congrats, Lisa

High fives and congrats Paula! Your card is over-the-top fabulous!! I LOVE the background with this great teen image, and I especially like the bright yellow color! I've never heard of this challenge before, so I'll have to check it out! Good luck in the next round too!
