Take It Tuesday

I love joining card swaps. The cards I get back are always so beautiful and I always get tons of great ideas to try out myself. But.... I always get swappers block when it comes time to design my swap card. I make all different kinds and I either end up not liking it, thinking it is not good enough or the card is just way too complicated to make 30 of them.
The card above is my swap card that I finally decided on for an upcoming Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Swap. But, here is the deal. This card is a case of a case. I cased a card a little while ago for a friend's birthday. I had no intention of publishing it so I didn't keep any of the info on who I cased. I cased the birthday card I made to make this swap card. So..... If you looked at this post and say to yourself "Hey, that looks an awful lot like my card" I want to give you credit for such an awesome layout. Pop me an email and I'll add your name to this post.

This card is part of Take It Tuesday.
