Petite Florals

Hope you all had a wonderful Thursday! Mine was good! Carver spent the night last night with my in-laws so I was able to get about 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Made all the difference!

Going to be a short post.... want to play around with my new Unity kit of the month that I got today... awesome kit!! And... I need to keep the sleep thing going and try for 8 hours tonight! :)

I made this card last night and it took me way too long. I still wasn't thrilled with it but it is growing on me. I love this set by Kelly Marie/Lawn Fawn. I will have to play with it some more to see if I can do it justice!

This is the other card that I made a few nights ago using the set... wasn't happy at all with the bright colors but... I am going to post it anyway because that is how I am! :) There was no mojo in sight that night! :) Still struggling with it but I can feel it wanting to come back!

Peace and Love!

I like both cards! The dots are embossed well, I find that it doesn't always with the the plates. But I love that big dots one! I even like the bright one!

Elise said...

There's just something SO right about well colored, well placed, perfectly embellished images... *Swoon!* These are WONDERFUL! Love, love, love your show, sweet Kelley!

Adorable cards, Kelley. We sure can be our own worst critics, but you done good on these sweetie!

Glad you had an opportunity to get uninterrupted sleep. I'm sure it worked wonders! *Ü*

I love both of these cards! The stamps are super cute - great little flowers - the ribbon is perfect - and I love the colors in the second card. But brights are my favorite, so that's not surprising! Great work! See what a little sleep can do??? ;-)

Love your first card! I think because of the texture with the ribbon and the embossed dots? Or perhaps for some reason the ribbon seems to frame your flowers more? Or maybe there is just a bit more contrast? They are both fabulous cards.

Both of these are great. I really like them both, even the bright one. It will certainly brighten someone's day.
