A Crazy-Colourful Birthday!

Yesterday was the start of the Papertrey Ink anniversary celebrations, and there will be contests every day leading up to the release; the prizes yesterday was such a long list that I couldn’t believe it! I had to give it a shot and hope I win, and as you are allowed to submit as many as you want, I went a little nuts churning out cards. and uploading them even until the last few minutes.

I know it may sound petty to say it but I do feel a little sad when I don’t win at challenges. I’m one of those people who pretty much never win anything so it always breaks my heart a little when I try really hard to give contests shots but don’t never get picked by the randomizer widget. Blah. I know challenges that pick winners by a random number does not have anything to do with my work but it just does not give me a lot of confidence! And everyone likes free stuff, don’t they? LOL

Anyway, enough of the rambling. Today I’ll share one of the cards that I made for Day 2 of the PTI contests where we have to use digital images created by the PTI DT to make our cards with.

Lots and lots of colourful layers of doilies and some orange(!) leaves!

Don’t get me wrong, I still love doing challenges, but oh, it feels terrible to be like some sort of failure! 😥
