Demo Swaps

I have such a great group of ladies that are my upline.  I get so much inspiration from them that when one of them hosts a demonstrator swap, I jump at the opportunity.  Here's what I came up with for this time.

The swap required anything from the new 2012-2013 catalog, nothing retired.  I wanted to use some of the new products myself so I knew this was a perfect opportunity.  We had to make 11 swaps and this took me some time because it required a lot of runs through my Big Shot but I think it was worth it.  I love the color combinations and how this card turned out.  What do you think?

All 11 ready to be shipped out!
I saw a neat technique done by Mary Director called layered stamping.  If you look closely at my flowers, you can see that it looks like the stamped flowers match up on the white layers; hence layered stamping!  It's a neat technique and love how it makes the flowers flow together.

I didn't put a sentiment as I thought it could go for a bunch of different occasions.  I figured the person who has it and uses it could add their own if they feel it needs one.
