Card Chain Swap Reveal

 Time for the Card Chain Swap Reveal and this month 32 cards were swapped.My card was sent to Mia  in Greece whose blog I have followed for quite a while.

I went with the sketch choice again using papers from??? Cut up the piece that had the name on sorry!The image inside the die cut frame was cut from Bittersweet Heights paper collection,the dies were from Creative Dies and I think the heart one was Memory Box-no longer have the die but found this at the bottom of bits box-the sentiment stamp is IndigoBlu and thought was apt as Mias blog posts make me smile! The image in the die-cut frame is the back of a woman with a crown on her head.

Lovely vintage papers Carol and pretty design. Thank you for joining us at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge.

Dee's Craft Room said...

Me again! Fabulous card Carol, the backing papers are lovely - and I always think that they look so much better when they are backed onto plain paper or card.

I love the heart frame, it's so pretty. It's driving me crazy, what is in the centre of the frame? To me it looks like an owl on a branch, wearing a crown, which has slipped over hs head and he is also wearing a nice wooly scarf! That cannot be what it is. My guess is that it is a rose but my brain just cannot see it. (I'm no good at those ink blot tests either.)

Your card from Suze is super cute.

Lovely design and vintage papers, I'm sure that Mia has loved your card!
I too have had some perplexities about the image inside the frame, but I saw a owl dressed exactly how Dee's said in the previous comment, so I'm pretty relieved about my eyes and brain LOL :D
Beautiful card from Suze too

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Hi Carol, I just read your replay on my blog about the image inside the frame, and now that you solved the mystery I can clearly see the back view of the woman with a crown on her head and a veil! :D My brain and eyes aren't so good as I thought LOL :D
