Here is another Stampin’ Up! Convention Swap for you today.

This one features the new Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper.  I cut strips from different patterns and attached them to a Chocolate Chip card base.

I tied the Real Red Satin ribbon around the card.  Thanks to my friend Lisa who traded some ribbon with me so I could finish my swaps!

I had to take a close up picture of the flower because it didn’t show up well in the photo.  I used the flower image from the Friends Never Fade stamp set.  I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to color the image – Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Real Red.  Then I used my paper piercer to pierce a hole on either side of the flower stem and threaded a piece of linen thread through and tied it in a little bow.  I love to add linen thread to my projects.  I sponged some Chocolate Chip ink around the edges.

At the bottom I added the greeting inside the small oval.  It is actually a simple card but takes some time to hand color the stamp each time.

I love the pop of red on this card.  I hope my convention swaps are big hits at convention.

Have a great day!
