My October Swap

Good Morning!
Boy, I've really had a mental block lately, but I had to get it in gear since I have a downline swap tomorrow.  So since I didn't post anything this weekend...I thought I'd get out a quick post this morning. 
This is my downline swap, VERY simple but I think it works.
I always make sure my gals know to do at least 3 things when they swap:  Stamp it, layer it and embellish it.
Those 3 elements will always make your recipent go WOW.


I've "stamped it" with the Just Believe stamp set in Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso ink.  My card base is Early Espresso and "layered" with Whisper White cardstock.  I've "embellished" it with the Peach Parfait stitched ribbon and punched it at the bottom with the Scalloped Edge Border punch.
I didn't have the Peach Parfait ink (I know gasp!) but I think the Pumpkin Pie and Peach Parfait go together great!

Have an awesome day!!
