The Mystery Is Revealed

I am part of a group of online swappers known as the Mystery Card Swap. Every other month, a different lady from the group serves as the hostess, which means she gets to choose the stamp we use for that round. She stamps images and we all get them, so we are all making cards with the same image. It's really fun to see how different all of the cards turn out.

Linda (gimmeahaller on SCS) is the hostess this round. She sent us the awesome My Favorite Things image, as well as some desinger paper from Close to My Heart.

Here's my card:

The bright blue cup in the lower corner is a brad.

Image: My Favorite Things WTG Gets Cozy With Cocoa

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic markers

Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Ballet Blue, Early Espresso, and So Saffron

Designer Paper: Close To My Heart Cocoa Cafe' Collection

Embellishments: JoAnn's organdy ribbon, Offray lace, and a cup brad (vendor unknown)
