Best Wishes & More Shoe Box Swap

Today I went to a Stampin' Up meeting and at the meeting all of us ladies participated in a shoe box swap. Basically you have your card sample made and all of the materials cut and ready in a shoe box, then place it at a spot on the table and all of us ladies go around switching seats and making each others cards. It was great to see everyone, swap, eat and to hear about the two women in my up line and their trip to convention.
This card was my swap using the stamp set Best Wishes & More, its hard to see from the picture, but the bottom So Saffron portion was stamped with the Stitched back ground stamp and two parts of the flower have been popped up. I wanted to use a glue dot in the center of the flower and press in clear micro beads, but I could find were I left them last (that drives me crazy because I know I have them). I have another card using this stamp set that I'll be posting later.

Supplies: Best Wishes & More, Stitched BG, Ribbon, Brads, Circle punches, Scalloped circle punch, Scalloped border punch, Pop dots. Colors: Mellow Moss, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Whisper White.

Hope your having a great weekend!
Its a hot and muggy 93 degrees today here!
