I am on the design team for Paperworks Co!!!

Yipee! Yippee!! I have been selected to be a design team member for Paperworks Co.! You don't know how much it has been killing me not to be able to tell all of you. I felt horrible about keeping something so big from my dork sisters. My debut is here and I can FINALLY shout this news from the roof top!
I received my welcome package in the mail last week and let me tell you it felt like Christmas!
I have a whole stack of pretty new papers and stamps with which to play. I felt a little nervous about sitting down and making a card. First, anxiety set in as I want to make sure I do my very best work and live up to expectations second, I typically buy 2 sheets of pattern paper so if I goof up really bad I have one other sheet to cut into. I decided to just make a card to warm up. I used my own pattern paper first (see reason #2) and then after that card went on to using the papers I received from Peggy. I wound up making two cards. I liked both and couldn't pick one over the other so I posted both. Below is the first card I made. A very simple one, but it got my mojo going.

Now for a little info about the cards.
