I wanted to share with you my good fortune.
Yesterday it was announced that I am a runner-up in the Stampin' Up! Cards for Keeps VIP Event with this card, well actually one almost identical, but tweaked with a few minor changes AND I forgot to take a photo !!! :-
I loved making this card and have featured it in a previous Blog Post.
So - What is the Stampin' Up! Cards for Keeps VIP Event?
Cards for Keeps is an Ebay Auction where cards made by Celebrities are auctioned to raise funds for the Charity Coram, the UK's oldest children's charity.
Stampin’ Up! UK is collaborating with celebrities and artists to create unique cards using a selection of Stampin’ Up! products. Their creative projects are to be auctioned on eBay in May 2016 with all proceeds going to Coram, the UK's oldest children's charity. Every day Coram finds adoptive families for children in need of loving permanent homes.
Cards made by celebrities for the 2014 Cards for Keeps auction resulted in frenzied bidding on cards made by celebrities such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Twiggy, and Tom Hiddleston, and this helped to raise thousands of pounds for Coram.
Submissions by celebrities and artists for the 2016 campaign has seen some excellent and creative contributions.
You can see the regularly updated 2016 gallery here. "
UK Stampin' Up! Demonstrators were invited to submit a design of their own for the event. So I feel very honoured and privileged that my humble little card secured me a place as one of the runners up.
