Cheers to you

Hi all!  I'm sure most of you are aware that Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking will have it's final publication in February 2015.  They're closing their doors.  I have looked to PC&S for inspiration almost since I started scrapbooking about 12 or so years ago (I started out as a scrapbooker before I got into card making).  They have ALWAYS been there.  It will be strange to not have them around showing me what the latest technique is and what trendy products I need to look for.  I was fortunate to have 3 cards picked up for publication - one for Stamping Royalty 2014, one for World Card Making Day 2014 and this one, which was to be printed in the Card Creations Vol. 13 issue.  Now that that's not happening, I get to show you the card now, so here 'tis:

I used 13 different bits of scrap paper and a fun banner die-namic to create the flags.  I used my black SU marker to make the lines then adhered black thread over the top.  The sentiment is embossed with black EP.  I rounded one corner for balance.  The card base is Razzle Berry.

So Cheers to You, PC&S and all of the fabulous ladies and go-to gals!!!!  I hope that with this door closing, a brighter and even more exciting opportunity opens up for you!  Thanks for everything!

And thank you for stopping by!

Lovely card! I'm disappointed I won't get to see it in print :( I had a card for that category as well. Maybe we would have shared a page!
