Two Birds with One Stone

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.

  5. These are just lovely. The texture on them is beautiful and both of those ribbons are such pretty splashes of color against the kraft. Thanks for joining us this week for the challenge at The Kraft Journal!
