Humble ARtist's Swap - Aug 10th

I'm finally able to post this card. Since I am the Hostess of this swap, I am the one who has held up the posting of these cards sooner! Yikes......I'm workin' it out!

Our guidelines made me cringe when I read them.......the amazing Vicki Wizniuk, was in control for this go around. Here were the requirements:

-Make cards 8 x 3 1/2
-Use one of Jeanette's colour combos
-Use a card layout from Wishes or Originals
-Use a circle and either a rectangle or square somewhere on your card
-Use ribbon
-Use 2 other types of embellishments
-7 layers, minimum, in one spot

Here is my card using our August stamp of the month, Happy Forever. I embossed the cute hedgehog and sentiment in some Ranger Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder on Black cardstock. The circle was cut with a Nestabilitie die and is on pop dots.

The three layers behind are stamped with Noted Backgrounds in Black on White Daisy; Spot On Backgrounds in Juniper on Juniper; and Intrinsic Backgrounds on Tulip in Tulip, respectively.

The polka dot paper is from Jingle and the heart image border is from Togetherness. The word border stamped at the bottom is from Soul Mates Word Puzzle. Both of the borders are stamped in Black ink. All mats are either Black or White Daisy.

I added White Daisy organdy ribbon with a crocheted flower and Juniper waxy flax, to finish the embellishments off.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
