Sydney Regionals 2008 - Swap Card

I went to Sydney on the weekend, and spent a fabulous day at the Convention Centre being WOW'ed, and swapping, and making cards, and hearing business tips and meeting up with lots of demo friends. It was great fun, and I've got lots of ideas to share with you at upcoming classes and workshops.

I managed to make some swaps last week, and this is my card:

My swap was only the card front, but I recently used this design at a workshop and we made the whole card (of course ;-), and this is the inside:

This card uses Always Artichoke and Purely Pomegranate cardstock, Holiday Harmony DSP, Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon and the Season of Joy stamp set, the latter three being available in the current Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalogue. I have also used gold brads, sponges and Purely Pomegranate Classic Ink, dimensionals and glue dots.

I had originally designed this card as follows:

But the opposing angles felt a bit odd, so I did not end up going with it in the end!

I hope you all had a fab-o weekend too!
Thanks for dropping by,
