Am I dreaming?

Good morning!
I have some wonderful news to share with you all today!  As many of you know- I participated in the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team contest.  For this contest- entrants were asked to submit 5 full cards, 3 scrapbook pages and 2 3-dimensional projects.  This contest was a HUGE undertaking for me.  I had a lot of trying moments creating my submissions but in the end it was all worth it.  Yesterday afternoon at 2:48pm eastern time I got a phone call from Amy at the Stampin' Up! offices.  I AM A FINALIST!!!!!  I am so very happy and never in a million years did I think that I would be in the top 20 but here I am!  Can someone pinch me please because I must be dreaming!

In between the nerve wracking wait for a phone call and the tears after I actually received a phone call- I was able to create this beautiful card to share with you.  I used to Ovals Collection Framelits to make the bow.  I will create a tutorial for the bow on Sunday.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
