Stars and Flowers

It's been another late night (or is it early morning??), but I whipped up a couple of cards that I think look pretty good ;-)

My first card is for 2 Sketches 4 You. I LOVE how the flowers turned out. I ran across this tutorial and loosely followed it to make these blooms from paper punches.


The flowers are attached with foam squares to lift them off the card for just a little extra "pop."

My second card is for the daily challenge at 365 Cards as well as this week's Color Throwdown challenge.


These colors were fun to work with! The challenge at 365 Cards was to make stars the dominant shape on the card... I used 8. I think that should work. Lol.
