Card Swap!!

I recently participated in a card swap with 17 other friends and incredible designers. I finished at the last possible hour I could and even late then, but I got it done. Although not much of a card "swapper", I love these women and could never say no. 

Our Guidelines
Monochromatic
Bling
My Pink Stamper Stamps
Cricut
Any Occasion

Want to see what I came up with???
I used my Imagine to print the patterned paper and the solid blue paper.
 I even decorated the inside with all the scaps from the project :)
I made the flowers myself with the scraps from the black cardstock I used for the base of the card. I will do a tutorial on them soon. Unfortunately, being black they didn't photograph too well.
The stamp is one of my favorites from the My Pink Stamper Encourage Me set as is the bird which I repeated on the inside of the card. This set is near and dear to my heart...sometimes it is good to be friends and the Head Designer for someone that makes stamps. You ask and it is delivered, LOL!
Have a great Wednesday and remember that this Friday night is our My Pink Stamper Monthly Blog Hop!! It is going to be tons of fun and you may even be able to win some prizes along the way. I will have a give-a-way here on my Blog. 
See you then!!!

  3. Beautiful colors and papers, Maria, and I love that flower! Good for you doing a swap. Only did them twice, never again. Not that I didn't love getting the stuff but being the procrastinator that I am... xxD
