Shoebox Swap

Hey, all! Hope you have some crafty fun planned for this week. I only have a couple of weeks left still school starts, so I'm trying to eek out every minute I can!

Today I'm participating in a shoebox swap. For those of you who don't know, in a shoebox swap, each participant designs a card, then preps the materials for the others to make it themselves. You put all the supplies in a box, thus the shoebox part of the name. By the time you're finished, you have a bunch of cards to take home...and you only had to come up with
one of the designs!

Here's the card I created for the group to make at the swap. It's also my second entry for A Passion for Papertrey's Forever Friends challenge.

Hope you like it!

Stamps: On My Couch, Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Aqua Mist, Raspberry Fizz pp
Ink: Versamark, Adirondack Pitch Black

Accessories: PTI button, corner rounder punch, dimensionals
