Of the three I like the ones with the ribbon more, I was thinking of adding some brads to one of them for something different but didn't know quite where to put them. Overall happy with the final cards.

Another variation with the top note, I also love the way the curly label punch matches the top note. I put diamond brads from the pretties kit as the centres of the flowers for some extra bling. For this one I cut one top note from DSP from the Cottage Wall collection and another from Old Olive card stock, the DSP one I trimmed off around the perforations and layered over the Old Olive one to make the frame. Sponging the edge of the curly label gave the effect of this layering on that also. The base of the card is Kraft as are the two flowers.
This is my verson of the card I received from the swap, I changed the colours - Kraft as the base, Old Olive and DPS from . I inked the Vintage Vogue flowers with Soft Suede and then used "rock and roll" technique with the Rich Razzleberry, I really like the way they turned out. Again sponging the curly label punch out gives some depth. The light part on the top right of the card is just a patch of sunshine that crept onto my photo area.

This one I also used the Friends Jumbo Wheel for the sentiment, cutting out a small part of it . The butterfly is from the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set, stamped on vellum and attached using a mini staple.
I love the colours of this card, Rich Razzleberry is one of my new favourites, and I am so glad it will be staying on as a Core Colour with the new Colour Renovation come September. I can't wait to get my hands on more accessories to match. I also love the Vintage Vogue stamp set and have used it a lot!
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery, Pale Plum.
Other: Dimensionals, SNAIL, Designer Label, Wide Oval and Scallop Edge Punch.
Techniques: I made the DSP - one of my new favourite things. Sponging the edges of the patterned paper gave it a more vintage look.
This one is a card I made for my parents for Easter. I needed a religous themed cards, but sadly no stamps that met this criteria ... so after having a look on Split Coast Stampers I found one to CASE, then got a bit creative.
I printed out and cut a cross on computer paper then used the cut out cross as a mask and coloured the background using Pastels, I used the yellow to make the apperance of a halo. The cross on the page looked a bit too plain and stark, so used the vine stamp out of Vingage Vogue set from the Autumn/Winter mini, to create the effect of vines on the cross. To do this I used the paper which I cut the original cross out of to mask the card. Vingage Vogue flowers and leaves were added with half pearls in the centre. I can't remember the exact colours used but think it was So Saffron, Elegant Eggplant and one of the greens. I was so happy with it I made another one for my in-laws also.
