I choose to use the Skylark paper pack to create a card this month!!

The Skylark collection is one of my favorites…
pair that with our wonderful How-to-book for an beautiful card design..and you are set!! 

Take a peek at this card I created for a recent swap I was apart of..

each time, when a New Idea Book is released….I am privileged to be apart of this swap!!

This is how many pieces I created for the swap J

While it does take a lot of time, I only had to design 5 pieces of artwork and then make duplicates of them.

It’s so WORTH my time, because in return I receive 5 items from EACH of the new paper packs!!!  (I’ll be showcasing them on my blog during the upcoming weeks!!)

Here is a closer look of the front of this card.
