Mystery Swap ~ You Cured Yet?

This card is for a Mystery Swap on SCS.  A group of us are doing a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess.  This swap was created by Forest Ranger—Jeanette.  These images were sent to us by Samantha, who will swap the cards and send us the next image, provided by Terry!  I can't wait to get the swap cards back to see how everyone else used the same image.  And then we get to do it all again!!!!

The image the Samantha sent is very cute and I had  fun trying to decide on what color combos I wanted to use.  I recently bought the Gina K cardstock and patterned paper set called Sundance and I knew the colors would be perfect for this image.

I think this card turned out very cute—and I hope Samantha as well as the others in the swap like it also. 

Image/Sentiment—Stampin’ Up Farm Fever

Cardstock— Gina K Pumpkin Spice, Sweet Corn, Sweet Mango and Sundance designer paper; SU Whisper White
