Gallery Idol 2012--Round 2


Hi everyone!  I am so excited to share my exciting news (if you hadn't already heard it)! 
I'm still in shock but so so excited for this journey!
You can see the Papercrafts post HERE!

People this is huge!!  This contest works just like American Idol and we rely on votes to make it to the next round.  Today starts Round 2.  So I am asking for your vote!  :)
Round 2 theme is YOU COLOR MY WORLD incorporating color and rainbow themes.

My card uses the Peace sign diecut from My Favorite Things.  I first layered some copy paper with strips of rainbow cardstock.  Diecut this with peace sign.  I then diecut another peace sign onto white cardstock and kept all the pieces.  The idea is that my rainbow Peace sign is actually set below the negative by using foam adhesive!


My sentiment is from the Vegtastic stamp set from Paper Smooches but I cut off the "peas".
I then selectively stamped the sentiment in black and then inked up the heart separately in red.

 One last photo to show the dimension and the peace sign inset into the negative.


There you have it!  My submission that I **HOPE** you like enough to VOTE for me.  I know it's simple but I stayed with my first idea (there were many).
If you want to vote, you can do so HERE.
Thank you so much for all the texts, FB messages, emails, and phone calls about my news. 
These mean more than you all know.  Hugs!!
{Love, Happiness}

Congratulations on being in the Idol gallery. Your card is incredible. I have that die, and have never used it. This is such a great idea--a double negative.
