Milwaukee Swap # 3

Here is my last swap for Milwaukee. I meant to post it on Friday before I left, but I just ran out of time. I totally LOVE how this came out. It's based on a card I made a long time ago using the Pretties kit. I didn't have enough flowers from that for the swap, so I changed it to 3 flowers using the five petal flower punch. It was so simple to make yet looks like it's more. I used the bone folder to shape the leaves and the flower petals.
Regarding my swap # 2, I took Lorien's suggestion and changed the top to just red cardstock, and I just tied a knot in the ribbon and wrapped it around the back. It looked much better after that.
Look for photos from Milwaukee as well as comments from me regarding what a fabulous time Rhonda and I had. I'll be posting as the week goes on. Gotta go finish unpacking and get some laundry done!
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Priceless, Fundamental Phrases; Paper: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Cutie Pie DSP; Ink: Bashful Blue, Rose Red; Accessories: Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals, Pretties kit, Ice Circles brads, Rich Regals brads, ticket corner punch, word window punch, five petal flower punch, bone folder
Happy stamping!
