I got rejected too :) - "Happy Birthday" card

Hello my friends!! Hope you are having a good Monday. My day is good so far. Well, last Friday I got some happy e-mail from Paper Craft Magazine, they accepted 1 of the cards I submitted for the next Go To Sketches issue, I got happy, but also I realized the 10 others I submitted got a NO-NO. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect, after reading that they were more than 2750 cards for only 288 spots! now I can say I am happy you are going to see at least 1 of my cards there.
Said this, I have 10 extra cards to post on my blog :), this is one of them (sketch #7)and also fits few challenges:

  5. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.

  6. Very pretty card. I like the stamps.

  7. Oh how pretty Giovana! I love this classic clean card! Love the beads! Congrats on getting one in... with that many numbers it isn't easy to even get noticed! Good for you! Thanks for joining us at Stampin Sisters in Christ! BTW... I tried to email you... did you get it?
