This was my swap card for the Chicagoland shoebox swap hosted by staramaze - what a wonderful job she (and all the STAR stampers) did. I had so much fun. Anyway, I wanted to post my card, had to wait until we drove back to Wisconsin today but here it is!
The BG piece is stamped with Aida Cloth and French script then run through the cuttlebug. The scallop "rectangle" is 2 overlapping squares from the giga-size punch. The photo corners are a punch (how COOL is that??) with white gel pen dots on them. I free-handed the doodle around the flowers.

Ths is a great card! Unfortunately, I didn;t get a chance to finish this at the swap, but I have all the components and will put it together this weekend! I just hope I can do a good job with the doodle border!

You're a better free-hand doodler than I! Loved this card and enjoyed making it. Really loved the thick gel pen marker you used and have been meaning to ask you the brand. Also, you're going to Mandy's shoebox swap in a couple weeks, aren't you? I'll see you there!
