Card swap!

Good evening Lovelies, 
Today I received my card from Shelley, we took part in our first card swap! For Cards Galore! The first picture is the one Shelley made, I'm absolutely delighted with it, I think it's gorgeous! So much to look at and very touchy feelie, lots of stunning embellies on it, thank you Shelley I love it xxxx
The second card is what I made for Shelley, not a patch on hers I feel :(
Cream 8x8 scalloped edge card base, I cut and rounded the edges of a taupe colour card, then cut a third off, which I heat embossed using silver pearl EP and a foliage sprig from my wonderful Creative Ex Dandelion kisses stamp set, the other two thirds I embossed with M-Bossability folder, added a piece of pretty lace I got free with a mag, the flowers I used a vintage style paper which I cut with spellbinders grand peonie die and inked with old paper DI, using the same card I cut the grand oval, the sentiment is also from the same set as the sprig, and buttons and bow from stash! Thank you for visiting today! Would love you to pop over to Shelleys blog too! http://happycraftershell.blogspot.co.uk/
