Unidentified Image Swap ~ Behind Every Successful Woman....


This is the card for the 4th round an Unidentified Image swap on SCS.  It is a group of ladies who are a part of a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same image, sent to us by the hostess.  The unidentified part is that we to not discuss the image at all until the day they are to be posted--today!   The images for this round were provided Terry.  She will swap the cards and include the next image that Jeanette, our next hostess, provides in our return envie.  And then we get to do it all again!!!!

The image the Terry sent was so cute and I hoped I had some coffee related DSP to use—but in checking my stash, I did not find any.  Guess that means I need to look for some next time I am shopping. I then checked out the gallery on SCS and found some wonderful cards made with this set.  So--I went to plan B and decided to look for online for something to highlight on my card.  I decided to use the logo of the main company we all think of when we think of coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, frappes, etc………….  I did find some coffee related twill in my ribbon stash, so that was added.

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