I have two cards for you today.
For my first card today, I am going with some bright spring colors....

 Dies:  Stitched Flower Bouquet DIE806-ZZ
           Whimsical Scalloped Tag DIE799-W
           Pinked Stitched Sentiment Banners DIE814-U
           Friend DIE808-H
Stamps:  Beauty Text CC142
              Hello from the Sunshine MC660 clear set

On a white A2 card, I brushed some green distress ink to create a soft background.  

I stamped the Beauty Text stamp onto the die-cut Whimsical Scalloped Tag, along with the  word Hello from the Sunshine set, wrapped some string around it and through the hole, and foam-taped it to the card front.

I used Arteza Real Brush Markers to add some bright color to the die-cut Pinked Stitched Sentiment Banners, then added a die-cut Friend  to it, and attached it under the Hello.

I used the Arteza Real Brush Markers to color the flowers from the Stitched Flower Bouquet, and added them to the tag.  
I love the bright, vivid colors these markers bring to my projects.  Especially this time of year!   Some black pearl embellishments finish the front of my card.


 on to card # 2....

Stitched Flower Bouquet DIE806-ZZ
Checkered Frames DIE805-YY

I added a panel of white and gold pp to an A2 card, and used the leftover piece from when I had previously cut the
Checkered Frames Dies from some white card stock for a frame around the outside. 
I added one of the pieces of the Checkered Frames Dies to create the border inside.  

I added some white and gold flowers from the Stitched Flower Bouquet , building up a collage of them. 

I created another collage inside the card.... 

I hope you are inspired by my cards.  There are so many amazing dies in this release.  Be sure to check them out at the Impression-Obsession store HERE.  

And don't forget to leave a comment for your entry for a chance to win a $25 IO gift certificate.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your visits and comments.
