Featured Stamper: Mercy Kerin
My fellow Great Swaps Girl, Mercy Kerin, is today’s FS on Splitcoaststampers. Her designs are just fabulous, and I couldn’t wait to CASE one of her cards! I picked this Kind Friend card from her gallery, and applied the colors from Dawn’s latest Raspberry Suite Color Challenge (#7): Raspberry (I used Pomegranate), Artichoke, and Celery.

I kept the layout and the wide ribbon, but used eyelets on the scalloped border instead of rhinestones. I added some silver cord as well. The sentiment was inked up with multiple colors, just like on Mercy’s card. Hope I did her proud!

Thanks for stopping by!
