FEATURED SWAPPER CASE ... JACKIE PEDRO

There's a new blog in town called Great Swaps Girls, formed by an invitation-only swap group of Stampin' Up! Demos (lots of extremely talented stampers!). They've issued their first ever Featured Swapper Challenge, showcasing the gallery of my friend, Jackie Pedro (strappystamper on SCS)! I couldn't pass up the chance to case Jackie! You can view Jackie's incredible gallery on SCS HERE, and her blog, The Scalloped Edge HERE.

HERE is Jackie's card I chose to case. Things I changed: a) I used the color combo of Very Vanilla, Sage Shadow, and Basic Black ... Jackie's color combo is Whisper White, Soft Sky and Basic Black, b) I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, and Jackie used Diamond Rough Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, c) I used the Rub-On word "Dream" and Jackie used "Make A Wish", d) Jackie used pearls from the Pretties Kit, and I used gold brads and a non-SU pearl and gold brad.

No matter how many times I photographed this card, I could not get the paper piercing along the bottom to show up without distorting something else on the card. Just like Jackie's card, there IS paper piercing along the bottom edge. The large flower is a black Rub-On from Eastern Elegance on Very Vanilla CS.
