A Shoebox Swap

A couple weeks ago, I traveled to Cecil County, MD to participate in a shoebox swap.  A shoebox swap is where the participant (me) designs a card, brings instructions, ink, tools, and cardstock precut for others to recreate my card.  As you can imagine there's a lot to carry - so you put it all in a shoebox.  Then at the swap, we pass around the shoeboxes and make one of each card.  This particular group was very positive, fun and inspiring!  I can't wait to see if they'll invite me next time.  We had a lovely Cinco de Mayo lunch!

Here is my swap card.  The color inspiration was here.

How did I do?  Don't you love the color combo?
I hope to see you tomorrow!
