I have scheduled this post, as I knew today was going to be a busy day. I hope it worked!
Today's cards were inspired by Monika Davis of M.A.D. Stamper. I killed two birds with one stone by flipping the sketch for the second card.
The first card was landscape and I used the colours Crumb Cake and the now retired Orchid Opulence (I love this colour). The ribbon is actually Rich Razzleberry but I find the taffeta colours are a little different to the true colours, so it works well. I used my favourite embossing folder, Vintage Wallpaper as my background. Also you will notice I added my signature BLING!
This next card is my first attempt at using Marina Mist on one of my cards (You may begin to notice I am more a pink and purple type of girl). I have paired it with Crumb Cake, am loving this colour at the moment!
I have flipped the sketch on this card to make it portrait and have added a strip of the Pinking Hearts Border Punch rather than the paper piercing edge. Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig (I love this thing!) to align your little birdy in its cage. Both sentiments are from the Sale-a-bration set, So Happy for You.

I am really quite happy with both of these cards. I hope the recipients are too!
A late addition: These cards have also been entered into 'The Kraft Journal's' Spring Fling Challenge. The brief is to use Kraft cardstock and to use the inspiration of the Spring Fling theme. I also entered it onto the 'There She Goes' Get Krafty Challenge.
