Card kit fun!

Hello! How are you today? Doing well, I hope! I spent my morning putting together cards from my October card kit swap! They are all finished and ready to be mailed back out! I am trying to get ahead on my massive swap commitment list and so have been spending some extra time at my craft table. It has been good therapy! Busy hands ease monkey mind! I suffer from monkey mind when things get crazy in my life and I have had my fair share of crazy lately!

Anyhow, the image that came in my kit this month is a real beauty! I couldn't decide whether to color it or not and after going back and fourth about it decided to leave it plain. I used my Nesties to cut it out and then to make a shimmery frame for it. I added a single green gem stone to pull out the green from the paper. I used every scrap of the paper that came with each kit on each card! I absolutely loved the paper! I added a few flowers and a sparkly center to each to further pull all of the colors together. I am kind of partial to this color combo. You cannot go wrong with green, brown and cream. I really like the way this card came out! :)

Ok, I have tons to do today! Hope that you have a great day! I will be back soonest! :)
