Anniversary Contest!

Today is my one year blog anniversary, and to celebrate we have a contest! I love card contests, don't you? *grin*
See this card? I made it based on the Verve Visual Sketch that Julee came up with for the contest. The name of the contest is:
The Verve Visual Honored Guest Contest!
If you've ever wanted to design for a stamp company, now is your chance. One lucky winner will be chosen (based on their card submission using the sketch below) to be the guest designer for the month of March for Verve Visual. The winner will receive the entire DT package that the rest of us do, including the pre-released stamp sets, and will need to submit 6 projects using those stamps and papers and other goodies!
Here's the sketch, courtesy of Julee Tillman.

To enter the contest, just submit a link to an online photo of your card to the post over at the Verve blog, here, by Friday, Februsry 15. Only links submitted throught the January 31st post on the Verve blog will be accepted. And remember, you DON'T have to use Verve stamps to enter, we want everyone to have a chance
A winner will be announced on Monday, February 18 and will be the Honored Guest for the month of March. I think there will also be some random prize drawings throughout the contest, so be sure to get your cards submitted! You never know what you might win!
There is no limit to the number of cards you can submit, and the contest is open to everyone, so get crackin' folks!
If you need some inspiration, check out the gallery here, where each member of the DT created a card using the same sketch! Remember to submit your entry to the Verve blog post of January 31.
So happy blog anniversary to me, and happy card contest entries to you!

Happy Blogaversary, Dana! I'm so glad you started a blog. I love seeing your amazing cards. This card is top-notch! I love the white dots around the stars to make them pop off the Kraft paper, and the multicolored star background is awesome. And I love the cutout square and the little stars on the tabs that look like they're hanging on a string. Just awesome!

This is a cool sketch-I might hust try to work something up with this! Your card is great, of course...love the contrast between the colors of the stars and the BG paper.
By the way, I forgot to tell you...love the new blog BG, that banner is really pretty!

I also want to thank you for your warm and kind comments Dana. I'm starting to shake this flu bug and I'm so anxious to make something.
