Ladybugs, Butterflies & Dragonflies Card Swap

I received these cards yesterday from Taryn, the hostess of the above card swap. There were 3 butterfly cards and 3 dragonfly cards. This card was made by Nancy. The colors are red and white. The scalloped circle, plain circle and butterfly are Nestibilities die cuts. The red check designer paper was embossed with the Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder and the border punch is by EK Success. Beautiful card!!! This next butterfly card was made by Lashawnda. The sentiment and butterfly were embossed in gold and there is a little bit of gold stickles on the butterfly. Another beautiful card!
This last butterfly card is another beautiful card. The strip of pink cardstock has glitter all over it. It was made by Cheryl.
Then there were 3 dragonfly cards. I had signed up for 1 spot in each category. This card is gorgeous. The colors are kraft and burgundy. The dragonflies were stamped, cut out and raised with foam tape. It is a perfect Mother's Day card.
The person who made this card didn't include her name. I love how she did the dragonfly. There is a clear round sticker on the scalloped circle and she stamped the blade of grass so it lines up with the grass on the card itself. A simple card yet so very pretty.
This last card is an oversized card so an envelope was included. Both the card and envelope are made from the Stardream cardstock which has a shimmer to it. There is a lot of sparkle on this card. And then the dragonfly is actually 3 pieces put together. This card was made by Connie. So, so pretty!!!
And lastly, here is the prize I received for signing up for 2 spots. There are different size gems, buttons, some die cut flowers and butterflies. Some pretty sheer bright pink ribbon with a couple of stripes through it was also included.
This was a fun swap and am glad I participated in it. The cards are so beautiful!! Thank you Ladies!!
