My final entry for the World Card Making Day Card contest - and my 100th blog post!

Here is my third and final submission for the card contest - it's a "grateful" thank you card.

I used the Cupcake Icing paper pack from Lettering Delights, and printed them onto the vellum paper.  These cupcakes match exactly to the files in the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge, so I cut out a cupcake as the focus of this card.  The base of this card was from SVGCuts scalloped corner free file, which I took two and flipped and welded to make a card.  I used eyelets, ribbons and twine, buttons, Martha Stewart doily punch, and I-rock (mirror glam rocks) to embellish the card.

I was quite happy with how my 3 cards turned out - and I wonder who will be receiving my cards (all cards are donated to Operation Write Home) and I hope that they like them.  As for me, I can't wait to see all the winning cards (published in March/April issue of Papercrafts Magazine) and I'll for sure be giving another shot at this contest next year :)

I just noticed that today marks my 100th blog post!  I started mid-May, so that's not too shabby!   I hope that I can keep this up, but come Christmas time - I'll be busy making my Christmas cards (I make about 100 of them - if any of you are interested, I have posted up my past 5 years of our card making in the Christmas in July blog posts (see July)) - so I'll try my best, but may not get in as many posts at this joyful season :)
