DSCN5013Hi Everyone! Travel day today…starting out in 20 degree climate and going to a 64 degrees. Heat wave! I save space in my luggage for my winter coat and check it. (this way, I have the space for all my goodies on the return trip too!)

I am participating in 2 organized swaps. – The Card Candy swap (see yesterday's post) & an Occasions Card Swap. Above is my card swap. Painted Blooms Designter Paper 137784 is too pretty to cut into strips. I wanted the design to be front and center!

DSCN5012It's very similar to a card from last week, only this time I die cut the butterfly (Butterflies Thinlits Die) from the Painted Blooms layer. Then reinserted the butterfly shape with some added Rhinestone Basic Jewels that were colored with Melon Mamblo (medium) Blendabilities marker. Also added was a little Dazzling Diamonds Glitter using the 2 Way Glue Pen. The Daffodil Delight Card Stock was embossed with the new Spring Flowers Textured Embossing Folder.

DSCN5014The inside was stamped using Painted Petals stamp set which coordinates with the Painted Blooms Designer Paper. (So dang gone excited for Leadership this week to see and stamp with so many Stampin' UP! enthusiasts!)

Take care and
