July Swap Cards Part 1

Hiya! Happy Saturday folks! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend thus far. Looking forward to a our annual picnic on my parents' deck tomorrow ... food and some pool time and the weather has cooled off a bit (well, like mid-80s) and has been lovely!

Today, I am sharing one of my swap cards for my PTI swap on Splitcoaststampers. This card was inspired by one of Betsy's cards from this post. Here's my take on it ...Turns out that I couldn't decide if I liked it better on kraft or purple card stock, so I did half and half! :-) I think I am leaning towards the kraft, but neither of these pictures are amazing ... but in person both ways is great. Here's a closer picture of the glitter in the center of the flowers. (You can click on the photos to enlarge them.) Well that is all for now ... off to enjoy spending some time with family and friends and hopefully some crafting later tonight! Have a great day everyone! :-)

Thanks for stopping by!
