Playing Catch Up

Here are two more cards that I did to get caught up on my Great Swaps Girls challenges. The first one was last weeks Featured SwapperBecky Carrafa(beccabatgirl). Becky has a fabulous gallery and blog. I chose this card of hers to CASE. I changed the colors, added some ribbon and a layer, and added some ribbon. The color combo is also the Prettie Weekly Challenge over in the Paper Pretties forum. The color combo was Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Creamy Caramel and Whisper White. Normally I would use Prettie stamps for the Prettie challenges, but I wanted to keep Becky’s card as close to the original as possible.
This second card was this weeks Featured Swapper, Dawn McVey(dawnsing). She also has a fabulous gallery and blog. I chose this cardof hers to case and I changed the colors, flowers, paper and I added some brads. The flowers are from Michaels, and they are technically bride confetti. I kept seeing all these fabulous cards made with them, so I just had to have them!! Both of these cards are pretty self explanatory, so I am not gonna bore you with the details, but if you have any questions, just let me know!!
