Rolodex -Theme Marie Antoinette & Charm-Summer Theme

We were to make a rolodex card with a Theme Era of our choice. I chosen the 1700's and I choose Marie Antoinette. I got all of my trims and the purple Boa feathers (which was on a roll, so I bought the whole role) same with the trim and beads, I bought to spools each of the trim, one role is clear beads and the other pink. The paper is from the Mademoiselle paper which is from DCWV. I love this paper.
What do you think?

Charmed I'm Sure- YPP

I made these charms for the swap over at YPP.  The theme of the charm swap is "Masculine" to honor Father's Day.  I alcohol inks on some of the nuts and washers and some other pointy thing.  I also use Tim Holtz springs and his light bulbs as well, To get them to stay on the swivel clasp charm I used those locking plastic ties that men use out in the garage.  I also used some of the tissue tape (Tim Holtz) and put on the washers.
Sorry for the blurriness, but hope you can see them. Oh I also added the little hanger from Tim Holtz's things.

Rolodex Swap continued...

Here is another Rolodex card... I just used a Transparency and stamped flowers and painted the flowers a yellow.  It really doesn't show on here. We are suppose to give our info on paper and let the other person decide if she wants to use our info on one of her cards that been altered,  
I had these already cut out using the SU address and phone card die.  So I just printed out some address labels and put all info on the labels and then adhered them to this Rolodex card, I like how it turned out to.  I also added glitter in the flowers and all around the open spaces on both sides.

Swaps- YPP

I've been doing a lot of swaps over in YPP.  You should join if love swaps and charms and pins of all kinds.  I'm in a Rolodex swap, we left the back open for the person receiving them can put any information on the back.
Here goes my rolodex...

I am having a tad bit of a problem with my camera, I used the mini rosettes die from Tim Holtz,The saying on the punched out square 
which is Marthra's new anywhere punch, it looks exactly like the one in SU catty's. And the saying says "Friendship Warms the Heart" which is in a set with other mini sayings from Hero Arts. Then added some ribbon which is from Hobby Lobby.
