Swap for Stampin'Up Regional

This is a swap for my first Stampin'Up Regional to be held in Baltimore, MD on October 2, 2010 which also happens to be World Card Making Day. While 36 swaps may not seem like much to seasoned swappers, it is more than I have ever made before.

I chose Wild Wasabi for the main layer and added it as the oval frame for my sentiment which was stamped in the Wild Wasabi ink. I used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder on Whisper White card stock adding some color to the flower centers by dotting with Melon Mambo marker and Crystal Effects. The Melon Mambo butterflies  which were made with the Embosslits Beautiful Wings kiss the flower stems. The flower in the stamp from Oval All is accentuated by outlining in Melon Mambo marker and colored lightly with Pretty in Pink.

With summer winding down toward crisp fall weather, I wanted to make one last light summer card to savor. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Barb - I love this. I love how you took the butterflies and placed them in the flowers. Wonderful colors.

Hope all is well.
