Chain Card Swap beginning with Carolina’s card

Welcome to the second in a series of Chain Card Swaps. At the beginning of October, Tracy Held started a fun journey with 10 other Australian demonstrators. We called it a “Chain Card Swap” (although I’ve called it Chinese Whispers cards). Each of us designed a card (Round 1) and sent it off to one of the other participants. That person CASEd (Copy And Selectively Edit) the card and sent their version on to the next person. The card made its way around until finally a version came home to the maker. We are going to have a blog hop for each of the card designs to share the fun and amazement at the path it took.
This time we follow the path that Carolina’s card took. You can see her original card here. I suggest that you start at her blog post and then follow the link through which is in round order.
This is the card that I received from Tracy:
Handmade card featuring a woman sitting by a window with a cup in her hand
I love the way Tracy has the girl is sitting on the frame .
Instead of using Designer Series Paper (DSP), I decided to stamp the cupcake from the Circle Sayings stamp set on a piece of cardstock. I kept the thick border and tilted angle of the image as well as the flagged sentiment piece, but I did add a small strip of white cardstock to break up the stamped cardstock from the base. The juggling koala is actually cut from a piece of Zoo Crew DSP.

I think I have stayed fairly true to the design that was sent to me.
Don’t forget – the best way to see how this card changed during the Chain card swap is to start with Carolina’s card at the top of this list.

Why don’t you have a go at CASEing this card too?
