A Challenge and some RAK's

This week it was my turn to pick the Great Swaps Girls Featured Swapper. I chose Arin Burdo(arinstamps). Her gallery is fabulous and her coloring is AWESOME!! I chose this card of hers to CASE. I changed the images, sentiment, ribbon, eliminated the stitching and colors. I also added three brads up in the top corner. This was my first time using the Out on a Limb stamp set from Papertrey. I really love it!! I stamped the branches and leaves with Black Stazon and colored the leaves in with my SU markers(Always Artichoke). After stamping and coloring and adding the sentiment, I went over the whole thing with the Linen BG stamp using Creamy Carmel. Then I distressed all the edges. This card was super simple, but I think it is very elegant.
stamps-PTI Out on a Limb and Linen
paper-Basic Black, Kraft, Whisper White and Always Artichoke
ink-Black Stazon and Creamy Caramel
tools-kraft taffeta, marker, edge distresser

Here are some of my RAK's I have been sent. The first came to me from Nikky(Butterflyears). You should see this card in real life, there are so many layers on the main image. Thanks Nikky, it's gorgeous!!

This second one came from Jackie Pedro. I LOVE Jackie's work and this card is no exception. It is even more amazing in person. She also sent some brads and ribbon along with awesome is that!! Thanks Jackie, I love it!

Here are some goodies I got from Jana the other day!! She sent me a Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper pack, some button blossoms, YUMMY ribbon, and a super cute stamp!! Thanks Jana, you rock!
