Craftmad October Card Swap

Good morning everyone on this lovely sunny Tuesday.  Today I have the card I made for the Craftmad October Card Swap.   We had to create one card using Pinks and/or Purples to send to our partner.  Along with the card we had to send all the elements that went to make up this card.  So in November our partner creates a card using the same materials and returns to their partner.  I can't wait to see the different versions that are created.

I dug through my Stampin up design papers and card to create this card.  Sort of cheating as I know using Stampin Up everything will match.  I have used cream paper flowers with retro flowers I punched from design papers.  Two layers of ribbon across the centre.  A wonderful white greeting sticker from Sticker Store.  I also created this charm using a tip that I spied somewhere in blog land.  I have always had troubles attaching charms.  The tip is to add extra links and also a clasp at the end to attach it to your creation.  The clasp is hidden behind the bow in this photo.  I figure then the recipient can then use the charm in other ways.

This photos shows the bits and pieces that I have sent to my partner so she can come up with another creation.
