Sale-A-Bration Sweet Summer Swap: Same Yet Different

One of my favorite swaps I received at the Stampin' Up! Minneapolis Regional Seminar was from LuAnn Dehne.  She made this adorable Sweet Summer (2011 Sale-a-Bration) card.  Exactly what I was looking for, for my Stamp Out the Winter Blues stamp camp this past Saturday!


I didn't have a few of the supplies she used, so I changed up a couple things.  Take a look.


Here are my changes:

1.  I flipped the layout
2.  The greeting is from Sale-a-Bration stamp set...So Happy For You
3.  My card uses Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery (vs. LuAnn's card uses Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz)
4.  I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the center of the flowers (had to see in the picture)
5.  I added a strip of Soft Suede

Swap cards are the great starting point when making cards.  I find myself starting to duplicate the card, then veering off in a different direction to make it my own.
