Last of the Convention Swaps

Woo hoo! I'm back and posting. Yes, I was only gone for a day but it was a long day or so without an internet connection. I decided to install Service Pack 3 for XP on my laptop and it did not play well with my internet connection. :( But I fixed it by uninstalling the service pack (heh heh) and now I am back and sharing another card! Yay!

This is the final swap card I made for convention and more specifically for the SCS Dinner Swap. I made 46 of these puppies and was so sick of them by the time I was done. I don't think I've made a pink card since then. Blech!

As you can maybe see I used the Pretty in Pink marker to highlight portions of the heart and then a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter for a shot of glam. For the background mat I rolled the So Swirly jumbo wheel in So Saffron Classic ink on Kraft cardstock. That is it for the notes on this card since I'd rather not think about it any longer or ponder how much fun it is to distress 92 (46 times 2) different pieces of cardstock. I think I inhaled a sheet's worth of cardstock dander in the process. Yick!
