My GSG Swap Card

These were due on Saturday so I think it's safe now to post my card without disappointing my GSG buddies that they saw it too early.

This is fairly simple and straight-forward. I really wanted to use some of the luscious Urban Garden DSP so I cut a piece into 1" strips then cut them to 2.5" long each. I needed 45 of these so they couldn't be too large or I'd run out of paper. Mounted these on the whisper white piece which is mounted on the Not Quite Navy card front. The card front is stamped with the Stitched background in whisper white- I love how that turned out! For the greeting I used the Wide Oval punch I finally got with the scallop punch behind it. The flowers and "friend" are from Pocket Silhouettes which is the set I signed up to use. "Friend" was inked with the marker and the edges of the oval were "sponge-daubed" with Baha Breeze ink. The entire thing is on Stampin' Dimensionals. Hope you like! Can't wait to get back swaps from my amazingly talented GSG pals!
