FS Card and Swap Card

Good Monday Morning!
Yesterday I spent most of my day stamping...not that I'm complaining....lol but some of it was repetitive work and that is something I don't enjoy doing as much.
Before I did anything I HAD to play along with the Featured Stamper on SCS! It was Joan Ervin! We were on the Dirty Dozen together and she is such a sweet person. I admit that I was a little intimidated by Joan's work and wasn't sure I should even attempt to CASE one of her cards....lol
After browsing through her gallery I finally decided upon THIS card to CASE. I liked the girly girl card and layout. I changed the dp, stamps and embellishments but kept the same theme and layout.
Stamps: Humor in High Heels, Taylored Expressions Downtown Diva; Cardstock: Regal Rose, Choc chip, WW and Sweet Always dp; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Circle nesties, Oval punches, Word window punch, White brads, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Choc poly twill, Dimensionals, Mini rhinestone
Next weekend I am attending the third annual Edmonton Extravaganza at the U of A. I signed up for a card front swap and have been struggling with it all weekend. This is my third attempt and I'm actually quite happy with how it came out.
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers, Upsy Daisy; Cardstock: Choc chip, Pink Pirouette, Kraft; Ink: Choc chip craft, Pretty in pink craft; Accessories: Clear ep, Top note die, Swiss dots embossing folder, Pink piroutte ribbon, linen thread, Making memories buttons(browns and pinks), Dimensionals
Here is a close up:
Thanks for stopping by today!

I wouldn't have thought of pairing choc. chip and tangerine. It's almost like candy. And your other card is elegant too.
BTW, thanks for your comment on Lauren's challenge which you left on my blog. That means a lot to me coming from an artist such as yourself.
