STAMP YOUR DREAM

Here's my submission for GWTWJunkie's 4th Convention Quality Swap. I love these swaps - I am so challenged to put out real artist-quality cards with lots of techniques and embellishments. I adore the color pallette of Afternoon Tea DSDP, but I haven't decided whether or not I like the half-pearls from the Pretties Kit on this card.

Well, I adore the half-pearls from the Pretties Kit on this card! I would love to have wallpaper and trim like this in my living room. The color combination is so soothing and cool. I bet this card will win an award.

Very eye catching design and colors. Your other cards and designs are also very appealing. I have started a new blog recently myself. I have tagged you for the 7 things game. Check out my blog for details on how to play. I look forward to visiting your site again.
