Studio Sketch swap card

I made 21 of these last night, finishing them early this morning for my monthly package headed to Minnesota. Turns out I didn't need to kill myself to get them done, I was a day ahead of schedule, but now I can move on to other tasks!!!

Card base is the new In Color, Concord Crush. My brain keeps trying to make grape something out of that, but Concord Crush is the official name!! The image is from a new set called Studio Sketches. Since I like wine, this image called to me but then I struggled a little with what saying to use. Until I stumbled on this one from Hope Happens. I thought it worked great, kind of a stop and smell the roses message!! The image and words were stamped with Jet Black Stazon on Naturals White cardstock. The image was colored with a blender pen using Concord Crush, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso & Basic Gray ink. It looks a little faint in the scan, but in real life it's not. Black grosgrain around the center and a Mini Library clip for a final accent. I'm feeling very challenged right now with few accessories and ribbons. Think my first full new catalog order is going to be very few stamps and lots of accessories & ribbon!!

Have a good weekend all!!

I love purple so this card is already attractive to me. I love the embossing folder - it really puts the finishing touch to the card. Very classy looking and the sentiment is perfect!
