2013 Convention Swap- PERFECT BLEND

I had so much fun at Convention this year, it had definitely been tooooo long.  Just seeing old friends, meeting new ones, the excitement, learning, and so on! Such a fun and motivating time.  I am still collecting my thoughts and admiring the amazing swaps I received. You will see a lot over the next several weeks.  Let me start by sharing the swaps I made..  Here is number one, I just LOVE when a swap comes out even better than the original sketch. Yes, I sketch everything first!!

I loved this card sooo much I made it in 2 colors, note the second one is Starbucks Colors, the place of my daily addiction!!

Here are the supplies I used to make it:

Stamp Set: Perfect Blend
