Happy World Cardmaking Day - Post #1

Hello there blog friends! Happy World Cardmaking Day to you!

This is the first of three very short posts today in celebration of the really amazing hobby that brings us all together! Today, a2z Scrapbooking will be sponsoring 3 Challenges...one at 8:00 am EST, one at 12:00 pm EST, and the last one at 5:00 pm EST. You will have until next Sunday, October 12th at 11: 55 pm to submit your entries.

Each person who plays has a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the a2z Store per challenge! In addition, a store discount of 20% will be in effect until Monday by using this discount code: WCMDSALE

The first challenge is based on an Inspiration Board, with some of the prettiest colors...silver, aqua and white! Here is the photo:


 I have posted a card on the a2z Blog and would like to share it with you here as well:


For this card, I used one of my all time favorite stamps (Hero Arts Large Open Flower), stamped onto an eggshell panel, and colored it with Copics. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and Silver Embossing Powder, added a few gems and mounted it onto a pool card base.

So, that's all for now! I will be back again at noon to share my next card. In the meantime, I hope everyone is ready to have a really fun World Cardmaking Day!!!
