I'm going to try and post a few things each day until I have everything loaded from Convention 2012. Then we will try and get back to normal. But I figure you like seeing all the goodies and info from Convention, so those I will try and get posted first while it's still fresh.
Anyway, onto today's cards and such!
This card was for a swap that I did at Convention 2012. It's from a swap that was called Over the Top. We met at the Marriott on Wednesday night and had dinner and some projects and swapped. Had a great time and would love to be a part of that again.

This is one of those step-cards. I had equal amounts on both sides and a little bit larger center. But you could change it up and do it anyway you want. I cut pieces of Lucky Limeade CS and embossed them with the Lattice Emboss Folder then attached to the card front. I then diecut the flowers from the Fun Flowers Die using the Big Shot. Once they are cut I then embossed them using the Perfect Polka Dots Emboss Folder. I sponged the edges of the flowers using the Elegant Eggplant Ink, then layered the flowers with Glue Dots & Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiments using Elegant Eggplant Ink from the Blooming with Kindness set. Then I punched 3 butterflies from Vellum CS using the Elegant Butterfly punch and then embossed them all using the Perfect Polka Dots Emboss Folder. I attached them to the front of the card and then added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to each butterfly center to add a little bling. For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment using Elegant Eggplant Ink with the Bring on the Cake set onto Very Vanilla CS. I then used the Apothecary Accent Framelits to diecut the shape and then I sponged the edges of the frame with Elegant Eggplant Ink. I diecut another shape from Elegant Eggplant CS and cut it in half and separated it to give a slight accent to the edges. Then added 2 Basic Rhinestone Jewels and using Dimensionals adhered it to the inside center of the step-card.
I love the way the colors work together without over powering each other. I think it turned out very pretty and elegant. Hope you enjoy it as well.
