When One Door Closes...

It's said that when one door closes, another door opens. In my case, it is so true. After a couple years designing for Squigglefly Designs, the company is about to close its doors. I learned so much from being on their team, and was lucky to play with so many images from very talented artists. I will miss my teammates as well, whose projects inspired me to go that extra step in my artistic work. Door softly closes...

Today, a new door to opportunity opens for me. Above is my first project as a Design Team member for Craft Your Passion challenge blog!! I am blessed to have been invited to design along with new teamies AgnieszkaAletheaHelenaKimLynnMichelle and Tanvi. I hope to enjoy the same close relationship with my Craft Your Passion DT, as well as inspire/be inspired by them.
My first project is a birthday card using an image from this week's guest sponsor, Aurora Wings. They are offering a prize of $10 worth of digital stamps from store.
My image is called Cupcake Kitten, and she is a patient little thing, waiting for that creamy goodness atop her head. That's why I thought the sticker sentiment was perfect for this image: Time to Eat. After coloring my image with Copics, I dabbed a little Stickles on for shimmer. The border at the top is from K & Co, and I had a few leftover cupcake embellishments from a previous project. The sentiment inside reads: "...your Birthday Cake!! Have a sweet day!"
Craft Your Passion offers weekly challenges with an ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES theme. So come and play with us, and show us what you got!
