Brag Alert, Section 2!  The NJ State Fair is over again for another year and I am proud to announce that out of six submitted cards, I won four First prizes and one Second Prize – yay me!  Here I am holding a row of Blue and Red satin glory . . . no cash, just glory. 

 So now we’ll have a mini-series on the next several Mondays of four of my six winning cards.  You are welcome to pick them apart and see if you agree or disagree with the judges.  Similar versions of two of the cards have already been posted so we’ll put those aside as I don’t want to do anything that smacks of a repeat. 

 Today’s card won First Prize in the Holiday category.  In continuing with my Kraft kick for this year, the limited use of Valentines’ traditional red really stands out against Kraft.  This is also true of the diecut white doily whose thicker pattern makes a stronger statement than an actual doily does with its more delicate design.  Hard to find a color combo that doesn’t work with Kraft . . .
