Second Convention Swap

Hello ladies! I've made it back from convention and thought I would show you my second swap I made. (My simpler one!) This one uses Happiness Always, a hostess set from the new Fall Winter Idea Book and Catalog. It features the new In Color, Pink Pirouette. It's such a soft, pretty pink.

I stamped the open butterfly with Heat and Stick powder, heated it, then covered it with Dazzling Diamonds. I embossed the sentiment with silver EP. I really love pink and black together, even though the pink and brown combo is really more "in" now.

I will try to get some of my best swaps from convention posted. They aren't even out of my suitcase yet! Thanks for visiting!

Stamps: Happiness Always (hostess)

I like the elegant simplicity of this design Paula. Black adds the elegance, the chocolate chip color wouldn't work for that.

Love & friendship, Jules
