"Enjoy" a swappy card!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, April 27, 2009

This little card was created for a swap between me and a few of the other Stamptacular Design Team members. I love swaps and was glad that I got a chance to get a few handmade cards from the team! I'll treasure them and keep them on display in my craft room as a reminder of my time on the DT, even though it is still far from over! :) We were provided with a sketch to follow and it always amazes me how we can all use the same sketch and still come up with such different cards! Well, this is the card that I came up with. One night, late, while lying in bed trying to get to sleep, I had this idea to have the circle open with the sentiment inside.. but I was sure I wouldn't remember when the time came to put the card together! A week later, when I finally had time, I DID remember! Yay! So, the card does open fully like a regular card, but it has the added feature of a small card on the front. I used the "rock and roll" technique on the froggy to give him a little more texture. I think it could have done with some sparkle maybe, or pearls, or rhinestones.. something, but I also like the simple green feel to it. I was pleased enough to send an extra that I had made to my Sister-In-Law for her birthday! I hope you like it too!
