Swap for SU Regional tomorrow

I decided not to stress myself out and I'm only making 25 swaps for tomorrow's regional meeting in Fort Collins. I struggled a bit with what to make, but finally decided that simple is better! Here's my swap:

Card base is Elegant Eggplant run through the Big Shot with the Finial Press embossing folder. The trim piece is Real Red punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch. Tag piece is Whisper White with stamps from Happy Moments stamped in Basic Black and colored with markers (Summer Sun, Gable Green, Green Galore) and the flowers were colored using the 2 lone purple water color pencils and a blender pen. I used the Tag Corner punch and and the Double Rectangle punch to make my tag. Ribbon is Real Red.

I also made another V-day card. This one was just for fun. I picked up these little frog embellies and haven't used any yet and decided I needed to bust open the package and make something! Bloggy buddy Juanita made this card last week that she used dp and stamped on it, I've been itching to try it too so I did that on this card as well. Hers came out much nicer, but I'm going to keep trying! Thanks Juanita for a great idea!

Thanks for visiting today!

Your swap card is beautiful! I agree with you, simple is the best and having to make 25, simple is the only way to go. However you always make "simple" look so elegant! I so love that frog embellie! It really makes for a great card! Best, Curt
