New Catalog Preview Swap

Happy New Catalog Start Day! WOO HOO! I'll be ordering me a Big Shot later...along with lots of other good stuff from the new catalog!

I was invited to participate in a card swap with some other demos to making cards using the preview sets. This was my first time swapping with this group, and I was really happy with all the cards I received!

Serene Spring and Heard from the Heart were the only sets I pre-ordered, so that is what I used for my swap cards. (I'll make up for that later today when I place my new catalog order!) Here is what my swap cards looked like:
I choose colors and the rough texture of the Sanded background to show that just because this set is called Serene Spring doesn't mean you can't use it for other seasons. To me this card has more of an Autumn feel to it, don't you think?
Stamps: Serene Spring, Heard from the Heart & Sanded background
Card stock: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango & Very Vanilla
Ink: Black Stazon, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip & various to watercolor
Accessories: Photo Corner & Scallop Border punches, Vintage Brads & Chocolate wide grosgrain

Have a wonderful day!
