Artistic Birthday

I hosted a Shoebox Swap for my downline (and anyone else interested in participating) after my Team Meeting on Sunday, and this was my swap card. I really enjoyed stamping with everyone, and trying out stamp sets I don't have (yet...). My card features Artistic Etchings, some of the new In Colours, and the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch (yay!). I created a patterned background by stamping different images with different ink colours and also used the stamp set for my focal image layered with a Filigree Brad, and the new scallop circle which works perfectly with the 1 3/4" circle punch. The sentiment is from Occasional Quotes, a new Level 3 Hostess set. This colour combination came from the new Colour Coach, which I love!

Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Occasional Quotes
Inks: Pear Pizazz, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush
Cardstock: Pear Pizazz, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Punches: 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, Scallop Trim edge punch, Modern Label punch
Other: Filigree Brad

I love the idea of using the filigree brad in the center of that image! Your Eiffel Tower card below is gorgeous, too!

Great card Liz. The collage look great and I love the use of the brad makes the scallop circle really pop.
