I Won Magnolia Ink Contest, Eeeek

Morning Crafters,

I have a very special post for you today. Have you seen the latest Magnolia Ink Magazine, eeeeeeeekkkkk, it's the first time I have entered the competition in the magazine and guess what, I wonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn, yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, yes I did, can you believe it.  I'm a little excited about this, don't know if you can tell.  Anyway they only posted the front of the Paper Bag Card so I'd like to share the whole project with you today.

O.K. so I made this paper bag card for my Daughter's 21st but I wanted a card that could be signed by alot of people in the company that we work for, so this is what I came up with.  

Warning, picture heavy, lol.

This is the left handside of the inside. I moved the digits on the clock around so that I could place the hands of the clock on 2 and 1, 21 O'Clock, lol.

And this is the right handside. I used a bulldog clip covered in crackle paint to hold all the postcards for individual departments to sign.

Hugs Tracy x
