This is the hardest swap to fix up. So, Instead I am taking it as a challenge to make another as close to the original as possible because it is so different than any card I would make. See what you think and let me know!

Instead, I dressed it up with trim and bling. What do you think? Tomorrow will be my final swap which needs alot of work, be sure to check it out!

Notice the gold trim? That is a new trim in the January-June Mini catalog!

To keep me on schedule, I will be posting one WICW final countdown card each day through Dec 8. I might need to create a couple more, but on the 8th we move back to the Orlando Thousand Trails with horrible, almost non existent wifi.
