HAS Swap Group

I've been a proud member of the MHS group since December 2011.  Our gracious hostess is Nancy Ball and every other month she provides this wonderfully talented group of ladies with specific guidelines for cards to be made for the swap.   Now, the rule is that I can't post my card until all cards from the Swap are posted by our hostess, and you guessed it, its been posted and now you can see it too.

If you're curious, here are the guidelines from this swap:

Use at least 2 NEW patterned papers from different packs, from Spring 2012 IB.
Use 3 embellishments.
Tie it up…..something must be tied up with either baker’s twine; hemp or waxy flax.
Use an AP shape.
Use at least 8 layers, not including card base.
Use at least 3 different colors of cardstock…not including neutrals. (check IB for what is included in “Neutrals”)
Card must be at least 4 ¼ x 5 ½
If you recall, back on March 28, I posted a tutorial on how to make this wonderful flower as seen here.  For inspiration check out that tutorial. 

Check back in a few days and see the update on my blog here with the MHS Group on the right hand side of my blog.  I have received everyone's May cards and my schedule has slowed down enough and will be posting pictures soon.  We have 2 additional groups added since the February post.

Have a great day.
