Challenge_your_partner_swap_72 I thought this would be a really fun swap idea when it was presented on one of my Yahoo groups.  Each pair of partners would send each other some papers and embellishments to create a card that would then be sent back to them.  This is mainly a Stampin' Up! group but my partner, Pat Huntoon, and I decided we could use whatever stamps, etc. that we liked.  Well...I don't think either of us is in the fast lane on this one...it took us forever to send each other our supplies and I'm just now getting around to sending Pat this card. 
    Pat sent me three patterned papers by Chatterbox (I think - in a stripe, a paisley, and an argyle - all backed by a textured look solid) plus a handful of chipboard pieces.  Maybe I'm a little bit boring but I just couldn't figure out a way to combine all of the patterns into one card.  I'm pretty happy with my 'quiet' little card though.  Other than the Olive, these colors are pretty out of my norm.  It's always fun to complete a challenge outside your comfort zone for a change.  Hope you like it, Pat!
Supplies:  Stamps - Vogue Vases by SU!; CS - Confetti Tan (r), Cranberry Crisp, Bliss Blue (r), Old Olive, watercolor paper; Ink - Black Versafine and various for watercoloring, White Craft; Other - patterned papers, chipboard flower, brads, waterbrush, ribbon from Michael's.



I love what you did with the supplies that Pat sent to you! It is a very hip card! The angle of the center blue strip is great, the stanp & sentiment are sweet. These are fun swaps! Deb


Well if Pat doesn't like it Leigh you can have her send it back and then send it to me because I DO LIKE IT! Very pretty and I love the chipboard piece and how you layered it over your floral image with the ribbon. Ida
