A Swap For All treats for sweet Marie

My treats for Marie, of Spun By Me, in the May swap for A Swap For All Seasons.. Marie is a dear, dear friend, and we have been partners in many swaps over the years. I was so happy that I was going to be able to create for her this month!

The card created with an image from my file (I think originally from Flickr)...

Using various border punches, I made layers of borders on the front, then added an over-sized flower, some rhinestone bling and a small tag.

The tag was made using a Julie Nutting Paper Doll stamp, embellished with some bling and a small rose.

The stash consisted of paper lace, ribbon, seam binding, and buttons and a big white silk flower.

The ribbon cards were printed and cut out from a free file found on Pinterest.

Another fun swap has ended but now there is another fun theme for the month of June...It's a Guy Thing!

I love the card! I've seen this done in a rainbow and all sorts of other ways, but never monotone. (Apparently I don't get out much, hehe) Lovely all around!
