OK, on to my cards. I did up two of the flowers in the set to show you today. Partly because they're all so gorgeous, and partly because I wanted to show you how the sentiments work equally as well inside or out. First up is the poppy. I stamped it on Fossil card stock and colored it with Copic markers. Love the colors I ended up with. I used a very simple layout for this one, but I love how it turned out. I think this one could even be a masculine card.


Here's the inside with the image stamped off to the side and another sentiment from the set.


For my second card, I went a little vintage-y and definitely girlie:) I colored the image with Copic markers, but then cut it out and popped it up for dimension. I used my Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics die for the top scalloped border and added some lace and ribbon to finish it off.


The inside of this one shows how I switched the sentiments up. See how well they work either place?



Alrighty, then, that's it for me today--hope to see you back tomorrow for another teaser day!
