Feeling lovey....

not personally you understand.. lol.. but decided this morning to make a couple of cards for this week's challenge over at the Stamp With Us blog, and this week is a Theme Challenge - Congratulations.

So, I had a delve through my stamp sets I got the other week and these are what I came up with...

For this one, I used the Mr and Mrs stamp set and Cameo Coral inks. I also used a slightly darker pink cardstock to layer the card. I added a little bit of ribbon which I stamped along. For the background and the ribbon I used the Forever Flowers wheel - versamark ink for the background and Cameo Coral again for the ribbon. Finished off with little pearls.

Here's a little close up of the stamped layers -

Having made this one, I got out another couple of bits of card and made another - how good am I??

This is the second card I made.
For this one, I used some double sided papers (Summer Picnic and Washington Apple) and pastel cardstock (Barely Banana and Bashful Blue). The stamp I used for the sentiment came from the Cheers and Wishes set and the background of the panel was the beautiful flowers from the Simply Said set.

I also used a scallop and circle punch to make the apertures in the card. The bottom section of the paper is pleated, although because it's stripy paper, you can't really tell.

Well.. that's it for now.. although I'll leave you with a little piccie for today.

This was taken whilst walking the pupsters yesterday. Hope you like it, it's a young fern.. there's something so lovely about watching them uncurl day after day.
