February Swap card

Here's my swap card for this month's meeting. I was totally inspired by this card made by the fabulous Chat (nitestamper). Her cards are always an inspiration.

Card base and mountings are Old Olive, flowers are punched in Melon Mambo and accented wtih white gel pen. Stamps used are from Vintage Vogue and Whimsical Words stamped in Old Olive and the sentiment was punched with the scallop oval and layered on the large oval. DP is from Cottage Wall and the ribbon is the new satin ribbon featured in the mini - love that stuff! I think that if I was making just one or two of this card for someone special, I would do as Chat did and use pearls instead of the white gel pen, but making 15 of them would have totally depleted my Pretties kit.

Thanks for visiting today. I notice another follower has dropped off. I'm going to get a complex here soon ....
