one that didnt make the grade

 i made this card for Magnolia Sweden and since it didnt make the grade for the magazine and get published i thought i would share it here on my blog.  i dont often use Edwin, but i found this fabulous paper that suited the image so well that i just had to make this card.
 this fold is one i havent seen anyone else besides myself use and its called a dbl display you can find the template for it on my regular blog :HERE
 my bff Barb sent me these darling little Christmas lights some time ago and they were also begging to be used.
i hope you like the card and give the dbl display a go, if you do decide to use the template pls link back to me


  1. Oh, so sad they didn't use this 'cause it's fabulous! I have seen a few of these double fold display cards around...I did one right after I saw the one on your blog and I think Norma also did one. Anyway, you did a fabulous job on this and the Christmas lights paper is adorable! Their loss! Great to see you back at your craft table again, even the makeshift one! Hope to talk to you VERY soon!
    Hugs, Barb
