I was once again pleased with the paper pack I was assigned for this particular swap because the black, purple and cream in the Moonlight papers make such an elegant combination. I knew they’d make a pretty card for Valentine’s Day.
 
 
 
I took on the challenge of cutting my card base with a cut-out shape in the front and then measuring to figure out how to cut the same shape out of a piece of patterned paper and get it to line up correctly. I went through a few sheets of scrap paper until I got it right, but I was successful!

My last two swaps have had very similar color palettes but with very different results. I am always impressed with the true versatility of our papers as shown in the examples below:
