Sailor Girl card (Cute as a Button image)

Hi crafty friends,

I was published!!! I was asked to do a set of cards using Cute as a Button images for an Australian magazine called Australian Papercraft Essentials. One of my cards was the "covergirl" hehe, I was so excited! I think I mentioned it to you back in January when the magazine came out but I wasn't allowed to show the cards until now. There's a picture of the cover below.

So here's one of the cards I made using a Cute as a Button image, isn't she devine? I used some "screw" brads and some Flourish with a Bling "water drops" from the Up in the Sky set.
