Swap Stuff~~

I am involved in a swap right now using the Always SS. In case you haven't noticed, I am totally lovin' the CAS style (that means Clean And Simple, Lissa....) After I finished this I thought of a couple ways I could bling it up if I wanted. I might Cuttlebug the card base. I might add a rhinestone to the birds belly, I might color circles to the flower centers on the Celery piece. But, I wanted to keep it simple!

But then I got to looking at it, and I thought it was to dark. To heavy. And maybe it needed some more color! So, version two shows just that!

Still no bling, but the extra color kinda brings it to life! I started with Kraft CS, used Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip CS, and finished with the white satin ribbon! The paper piercing adds just a touch of texture and style! How do ya like it?

2 1/2 more weeks until my Son In Love, daughter and GRANBABY come to see me! Can't wait!
He is already 7 weeks old, which means I moved 8 weeks ago. Time flies.................
