There's always a first time for everything...

So, I entered my first Design Team call! (I didn't make it, but honestly I was SO excited to just enter). I felt like I was stepping up on the scrapping ladder! Since the call is over I thought I'd post the cards I entered. Maybe I can at least get some helpful suggestions for the next go-round! :)

I love this cutie couple! They are very 50's reminiscent. I colored them with my PrismaColor pencils. I am still trying to get the hang of coloring in general. I like the pencils really well though.

This is the second card I submitted. I was trying to do some fancy flower work in the corner. I knotted pink ribbon and then attached the flowers with sparkly brads. I colored the image with Bic Write-It markers.

I love this little guy! He's so cute! I used him for my son's 2nd birthday party cards and favors as well as for the DT call. I colored him with PrismaColor pencils and tried to make it a little bolder. I also traced around the stamped image with a black marker.

I was really pumped to enter this DT call. I knew I had absolutely no chance of making it, but it was fun working on cards that would be judged and not just tossed out! :) The company hosting the DT call was The Greeting Farm. Their stamps are insanely cute! Check them out!

Well these are all really nice! Sometimes it's hard to know just what they're looking for. I've entered several DT calls and haven't been picked yet!

These cards are very cute. I have submitted items to a few different design team calls and haven't been selected yet either. All we can do is keep trying...soon we will succeed.

We must persevere... Keep your chin up and keep trying...

I think they're fabulous! I entered my first design team call recently, too, and didn't make it, but I understand your excitement about just participating! Keep it up!! Your cards are great and your time will come!
