The Mystery Continues

I have many online friends - many who are part of the forest swaps that I host on Splitcoast Stampers. Out of that group, an idea was formed to create a challenge swap. Every two months there is a new round. The hostess for the round sends images and/or an extra something to the other participants. This means that everyone creates with the same image/item, but uses her own papers, embellishments, and creativity to come up with a standard sized card.

April was the hostess for this round and she gifted us with the cutest image. Easily recognizable as a TGF image, the cutie is Anya in the Spotlight. April also sent each participant a small roll of decorative tape to use on our cards.



Here's my card:




I wasn't sure how much tape was on that roll, and since I had to make four cards (it's a 3 + 1 swap), I went with a minimal amound of the tape ont he block of Crumb Cake paper that is directly behind the image.

I added lots of bling - rhinestones - and prima flowers as well as a Verve sentiment. Another forest friend, Kelly, actually gave me the sentiment stamp. I absolutely love it!

Thank you, April, for a fun round! I am so excited because soon these cards will be swapped... and we'll receive the image from Gael who will serve as our February hostess.

Seeing your great colouring I am extra sad that the parcel got lost - I had stamped off some images for you - Sugar Nellies and the like! I'll have to do it again if it doesn't make it! Chris xx
