This is the card I'm taking to the shoebox swap tonight. I have always had trouble with swaps because I agonize over my card. I spent so much time last night trying to come up with a cute card that was easy--you should see the rejects littering my table right now! I ended up using this classic layout. I hope the other ladies like it and don't think it's too boring. *sigh*
I added some interest by sewing on the pattern paper panel and doing something different with the ribbon. I also edged the card with vintage cream ink.
Thanks for looking, I'm off to the pool with the kids. My oldest got sick on Saturday, along with my computer-ugh!, and she's feeling better now and eager to do something fun. School starts in less than 3 weeks here (Aug 7th!!) and the pool will be closing soon. Have a great day!
