Top Ten of 2011 {Cards}

Got to say it's a lot of fun to go back through all the photos of my cards this year. It was hard to pick out 10 but these, I truly believe, are my favorites from the year.



(As seen in Card Ideas for Paper Crafters, Paper Crafts Magazine, pg. 81)




















So fun! Did you share a top ten on your blog? Let me know. I want to come see! :)

Fantastic cards! I never would have thought to use the notebook edge punch on a medallion. Very cool. Your punched and pearled strip is clever and your folded flower great too. Thanks for sharing!
