"True Friend Swap Card"


I am in a 6th of the month swap. There are 6 of us and we each send the other 5 people one card and we get 5 back. Instead of having a hostess. We send them out by the 6th of the month. This is my card for October. I hope they like it. I have been making it in my head for two weeks now. I just got the paper, ribbon, and stamp set Friday. I know, cutting it close. But I wanted to use everything for this swap. My current stampin' up sets are very few since the last retire, so I couldn't wait to get some new ones. I inked the flower with markers. I used Really Rust, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. Where is the chocolate chip you ask? It is under the brad of course. They looked pretty cool when I was done but I felt it needed one more embellishment so I went for the jeweled brad in the center of the flower. These colors are very much out of my comfort zone but I really love the Apple Cider paper. I am happy with how it turned out. I love it.
Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Apple Cider DP
