GSG Preview Swap

I almost wasn't going to swap with the preview items I ordered. I was just going to wait until we did our new catty swaps. I held off, until some gentle nudging took place, and then I said what the hey. Because I signed up late and I only ordered two sets, I didn't have much choice (we like to keep the swaps balanced with a wide variety of samples so we keep it to 2 or 3 people per set). I picked to use the new sentiment set, Teeny Tiny Wishes. You are going to LOVE this set, if you don't already. It's got it all in there, with lots of fun fonts. I focused on a fun new color combo (cased from the new catty)-Old Olive, Razzleberry, Bermuda Breeze and Crushed Curry. I did some distressing, stitching and added a fun circle image from Circle Circus to help set off my sentiment (along with the NEW Modern Label Punch). I cranked out 11 of these in about an hour and twenty minutes! I added an olive brad to this card, but some of the others have a Rose Red brad (from the Rich Regals brad pack) and I think is looks great with the razzleberry color. It's not a perfect match, but a great compliment. My parents are in town so I'm off to have some fun with them and the boys. See you Monday! Hugs, Lisa
