#Congratulations - Monday Montage

Welcome to a post-Convention Monday Montage Blog Hop! It was great to be able to meet up with most of these amazing ladies there, but we were missing a few. I got some awesome swaps from them, and I wanted to share the swap I made with you today.

I have been dying trying to keep my being on the Artisan Design Team (eeekkk!) from this group. So this card was my way of hinting at it, especially with the #secretsout. I'm not sure if any of them figured it out before the team was announced though. The "Congratulations!" comes from the Bravo stamp set, which has a ton of great congratulatory sentiments. I am in love with the @SoSocial set! I love being able to add additional messages with the hash tags!

I love the color scheme on this card! It is just so bold and different from what I am usually drawn to. The black and white pattern from the Back to Black Designer Series Paper goes perfectly with the bold colors. I added some Silver Foil fringe to add more of a celebratory feel to the card. I just love everything about this card!
