Oriental Swap at MFP

 I decided to join in a card swap over at MFP- not only do you get to exchange ideas with other card makers, but MFP rewards you with stamps : )

 My background is Washi Paper- a gift from Paige-it has Metallic Gold in it which the picture does not pick up. I used the subtle green color from the Washi for the background and for my MS punched border. I added some metallic Gold cardstock by Paper Temptress for accents. The butterfly is stamped, colored with Copics and I added Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust paint to add some shimmer.

 Here are the cards I received back- taken with my Iphone- so the best they can be:

Floral card- in my favorite two colors- by An'Jenic Gibson

Tiger by Jane Chambers- taken at a side angle so you can see the gold swirl accents and the green jewels

 And finally, a beautiful Z-fold card by Vickie Y. I love the chipboard fan- oh- I took a picture from above showing the card design and the inside as well:
 I am liking this card design- may have to make one of these myself.......

 Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day : )

Gorgeous card, Shelly! Love the pop of colors and I can imagine the gold running through the butterfly. I bet it sparkles. I also love the design of the z fold card. That's fun too. Hope your year is off to a great start!

What fun. I used to love to do swaps, but not enough time for them now. I just love the card you created. Your butterfly really pops off the card. Lovely cards in return.
