Card with Handmade Paper

I've been thinking about making a card with some handmade paper since I received a card from my blogger buddy, Jalna. I knew I had some, I just needed to find it. Here is the card I made this afternoon. The red layer is handmade paper, I tore around the edges. The cardbase is gray. I had the black layer already cut out. I was going to use it on another project. I cut it out with one of my Nestibilities die cuts and then I ran it through the crimper. The stamp image is a SU set. I'm not sure if I like the card or not.Here again is the card Jalna made and sent to me. The off-white layer is handmade paper she made. I like her card a whole lot better.
I have signed up for several card swaps on Splitcoast Stampers and need to be working on them. I am also hosting a swap myself on SCS. I signed up for 8 swaps all together, I've completed one of them. It was due today so the hostess should be swapping out the cards in the next few days. The theme was Ladybugs, Butterflies and Dragonflies. In some of the swaps I've signed up for more than 1 spot. I may have bit off more than I can handle. Oh well, they are fun to do and some how they'll get done. :))
