The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC119

I thought it would be fun to play along in a challenge.  I found this challenge on The Play Date Cafe blog.  The Challenge was to make anything using the colors black and white and then adding a splash of hot pink. When I saw this challenge I knew immediately what I wanted to make but it took me a few days to actually sit down and make it.  I finally had the opportunity today.  I finally got the card how I wanted to and I am happy with the results.  This is the card I made.
I am glad I was able to play along in this challenge and I hope to play other challenges as well.  It really helps to improve and keep up on cardmaking skills.

Birthday Card

I recently decided to submit a card to Paper Crafts Magazine for their Stamp It! cards edition.  Needless to say my card was not one of the cards that was chosen.  That's ok.  I was a little bummed at first but I got over it.  It is the first time I have entered a card to a magazine and I am sure there will be other opportunities.  Anyway, this is the card that I entered. 
I am now on to my next endeavor.  The Stamping Royalty Contest for Paper Crafts Magazine is coming up.  The deadline for that is March 20th.  There are 5 categories and I am going to make a card for each category.  I haven't started on any cards but I have some ideas.  Wish me luck!!
