Mystery Card Swap

This card was created for Madonna Dunn’s Mystery Card Swap. I received a beautiful assortment of matching cardstock which I made into a birthday card.

I think I should have done a different kind of border around the Top Note panel....maybe I should have cut the Daffodill Delight yellow to border it properly rather than leaving it as a rectangle. This is probably the only part that I wish I'd done differently.
.....and I wish I had the word window punch so I didn't have to cut around my sentiment panel by hand. That will be my next purchase I think. :)

It was great fun and such a good idea. I hope there are more in the future. :)

  1. Hi Alison!! I really love what you did with your kit! Thanks so much for playing along. I'm going to try and get them up on the blog later today or tomorrow. xo

  2. What a great card, love the colours and the button on the butterfly.

  3. I love how you have put this together Alison. I think I would have left the Daffodil as a rectangle like you did. It sets off the patchwork.
