Louie Award!

I was blown away when I heard that my holiday design won a Louie Award at the recent Stationary show in NYC....I sent my original concept (the aqua + white) to Great Arrow Graphics who changed up the color to this lovely copper ink against green. They are "Masters of the Color Universe" in my mind!!! Their beautiful hand silk-screened process took this card to the next level...they make all of my designs look SO much better! see more here
