Convention swaps are coming along...

My Convention swaps are coming along nicely, with much help from my super duper DH and some Awesome Stampin'  Fairies Smiley from millan.net

I have already posted the first two swap cards for two of the three organized swaps I have signed up for, and was able to get the third swap designed yesterday with the help of said Stampin' Fairies.  I love how this turned out!  I used Mr. Big Shot, of course, and the Framed Tulip Embossing Folder and the Scalloped Oval die.  The colors use Concord Crush, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.  I sponged Concord around the oval cut out, then - using the Baby Wipe technique (dribble reinkers on a folded baby wipe and use as your stamp pad) - stamped the large flower from Fabulous Florets.  I love that flower!

I do need your help in choosing which variation - Sample #1 has a ribbon knot....


And Sample #2 uses a fourth large pearl...


Here they both are - side by side....Which is your preference?  Please leave a comment and help me decide!

  4. I'm afraid I won't be much help ... I love them both, but the one with the ribbon does step it up a bit.
    Lovely job!
