You just wait until I cut into them too... lol
I pulled out the Hoopla papers for the first card. This collection is the best proof that whoever said that "blue and green should not be seen", had to be insane.
I love the melancholic look that these two give when paired together.
My card was inspired by this beauty, by my fellow DT Member and a terrific artist, Laurie.
Glitz Design "Hoopla " papers: Polka, Cake, Frames, Zebra
Glitz Design "Circle Flourish" Stamp
Other: cardstock: white; stamps: PTI (Guide Lines Two), Waltzingmouse Stamps (Vintage Labels 10), The Craft's Meow (Celebrating You); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue), Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap); border punch: EK Success; sewing machine; Nestabilities Labels 10; seam binding; Leafy Branch die: Taylored Expressions; paper flower; Ice Stickles; pearls: Kaisercraft
I love how the Glitz flourish stamp coordinates with the Nestie. I'm also very happy with the discovery, that the PTI decorative elements fit perfectly into my scallops. Isn't that a lovely effect? I would be doing that trick again for sure!
With my next card, I pushed feminine to the maximum, and filled the space with roses...
I'm seriously addicted to the Laced With Grace Floral paper, so I fugured I should make the card where it plays the main role. No covering it with stuff, let the design shine! I even enhanced the look with the rosey transparency, from the same line. I've been hoarding this one for a long time, it's just too beautiful.

I added interest to the background paper (Rose), by scoring vertical lines with my Scor-Buddy. The effect reminds me of a weathered wooden panel, which again intensifies the romantic feel to this card. I really like how these two turned out, I hope you like them too :)
