Swaps are done :)

I meant to post this card on Friday...but my husband had to go out of town and he took my camera. That meant no uploading pics for me. Last week I was struggling with finding my creativity, everything that I made I did not like. I'm sure the cards were fine but they all lacked something that I couldn't figure out. So I went back to this simple sketch that I use when my mojo is not flowing :) For some reason the yellow on the boot is showing up really bright, but in real life its more subtle and blends well. I used the Green Thumb stamp set from Papertrey ink. This is one of my favorite sets by them. The yellow and blue paper are from SU, they are retired so I have no idea what the real color name is...? I stamped the sentiment in stazon black, and the boot is stamped in old olive & summer sun. The ribbon is from May Arts, when I bought the ribbon I only bought a few yards, so I have been hoarding it. However, it went well with the card, so that ribbon had to be cut :) I dry embossed the paper with my cuttlebug textile folder. I made 6 of these cards and then 6 of my other card for the swap. I hope all the ladies like them. The round 2 swap cards I received were really good, so I can't wait to see what I get in the mail this round!
