Totally unexpectedly, I stumbled upon a shoebox swap among stampers in my area today. It sounded like a great way to get away from the business end of this (night and day, it seems) and be a stamper again so I signed up. I'm eager to make new stamping friends 🙂 Here's the card I made and, below, its inspiration.

Products used to make card:

  • Card stock used: Melon Mambo (pg 155 IB&C) and Certainly Celery (pg. 157)
  • Ink: Melon Mambo (pg. 155)
  • Stamp set: "Sincere Salutations" (pg. 143 IB&C)
  • Bigz Die "Flowers, Daisies #2" (pg. 199 IB&C).
  • 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon in Melon Mambo (pg. 182 IB&C)
  • Rhinestone Brads (pg. 179 IB&C)

At convention, my 2nd level downline, Trina Hanson, swapped this gorgeous card that I just fell in love with so I pretty much copied it for my swap with her blessing. Thanks Trina!
