Flashback Friday

My 365 Cards DT pal, Amy Tsuruta, has a fun challenge on her blog called Flashback Friday. She challenges us to dig into our past work and show something old! The current challenge is to show the very first card you submitted to a challenge!

I had to dig BACK to find this card - all the way to October 22, 2008! So two years ago I posted a card in my first online challenge! I had been doing some design team work already, but this was my first "other" challenge. I posted it to a sketch blog called Card Sketch A Day, for their challenge #52. I don't think the blog is active any more, but I used to play there from time to time back when.

I am pretty sure I made this card right after I purchased the Cricut Storybook Cartridge. And I'm am so laughing right now that this is an owl card - as we all know how Amy loves owls! And I SWEAR, if you go back to my old blog posts this really IS my first ever challenge card! {insane laughter here}

This is not a bad card, but I'm trying to figure out that background paper! And I am not loving where I put the bow. The worst part is that I scanned the card instead of taking a photo. So the bow is all squashed looking! Happy I have improved in that area! So there you have it, Gloria's first challenge card.
