I just finished my first card for this class, and I am glad that I didn't look at your card first. I am blown away! The colors are amazing, and the sentiment works so well with the vellum. I think you moved to the head of the class!! Awesome job.

Hi Lin, Just saw your comment over at Pam Sparks' and zipped over to visit. Love your bluebird blog header too! Great card, and I think I'm in this class too, if it's Kristina for Hero Arts. Been too busy to even check out the class. Your Homework is Lovely! TFS & Hugs

So glad you are taking this class too so I can see your cards -- this one is beautiful! I spent the afternoon in the craft room and managed to complete 3 assignments, one of which I'm very happy with. Can't wait to see yours as you complete them!

What a wonderful take on Day One in class! I'm thrilled already and went shopping for supplies at my LSS today!!

I loved this card online and yours is so pretty with the extra sparkle of the sequins.

I am going to try one like Laura's, which I also LOVED!

I just bought this stencil & was searching Google images to see how others have used it. I was excited to see that you made this card while in the Stenciled class. I took that class too & learned so much. Love the colors you chose!
