Sharing one of my Convention Swaps

Hello all.  I'm still unpacking from my trip to Salt Lake City for Stampin' Up!'s 25 anniversary convention.  It was an amazing time...with 5,800 people in attendance!  I made 160 "swaps" to exchange with other demonstrators.  It helps me see other stamps and punches "in action" and makes me think outside of my comfort zone in terms of color combinations.  I'll be posting my swaps in the next few days and then I'll share some of my favorites that I got in return.  Keep stamping!

I love the simplicity of this one.  I used Smokey Slate ink, stamped off to make it lighter, and Melon Mambo for the sentiment.  The cake is from Embellished Events and the Happy Birthday is from Sassy Salutations.  A little Dazzling Details added to the candles gives it some inexpensive bling!  This is one of the cards on the August Card Buffet, held on Aug. 5th (2 seats left) and August 10th (8 seats available).  Cost is $16 and you make 8 cards of your choice.  Hope you'll consider joining us!  Just have to bring your own adhesives (and I suggest you bring card making tools to make your life easier).  Contact me if you have questions.
