SWAP cards

I had three SU! swaps this month. 2 of them have been returned! What fabulous ideas! I can't wait to share with you some of the amazing things these gals came up with. Here are my cards for 2 of the swaps.
The first card was for a "punch" swap. I picked a simple design using some of my well loved punches.
Recipe:
Stamps: stitched exotics, live your dream, one of a kind
Paper: rose red, regal rose, whisper white
Ink: regal rose, rose red
Accessories: celery ribbon, 5 petal punch, scallop punch, corner rounder, boho blossoms punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, rose brad

The next swap card was for the new mini collection. I signed up for Live Your Dream.
Recipe:
Stamps: live your dream
Paper: soft sky, groovy guava, close to cocoa, whisper white
Ink: groovy guava, close to cocoa, soft sky
Accessories: ticket corner punch, corner rounder, oval punch, stampin dimensionals, chocolate chip ribbon, aqua painter, silver hodgepodge, paper piercer
