Swaps are here!!

I was recently involved in a swap for the new holiday mini catty and here is the card that i came up with. I used pear pizzazz and poppy parade for the ink and the cardstock and a cute christmas (wood #120825 or clear #121133) for the stamp set.  I used some crystal effects (#101055) on the trees to make them pop.  I also used the designer label (#119862) and modern label (#119849) punches.  The final touch was the real red 1/8" taffeta ribbon (119251) tied in a bow.  I will be posting the swaps very soon, so stay tuned :)

Happy Wedding day!

I made this card at the last minute, of course.  ha ha..anyway i like the idea of it, but also think i could probably do something to improve it a bit.  My favorite part is the paper rose :)  i wanted to do a bouquet of them, but i would have to make them a lot smaller for that.  This card was made with real red, basic black and whisper white.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370 and was stamped in craft whisper white ink.  Everything is SU except the rhinestones, brad and the embossing folder, Divine Swirls.  The second picture i tried to get a good picture of the flower.  My upline Julie has a tutorial for making them.
