    What pretty and happy cards to usher in spring. The colors are so sweet and pair beautifully with the embossed white part. Very nice!

    The white embossing gives lovely texture to these cards & I love the way you used the bright red on the flower centres to really make the flower shapes stand out. The echo of the red cardstock strip adds lovely contrast between the watercoloured panel & the yellow of the card base as well as echoing the flower centres. My eye was caught by your scalloped edges of the sentiment panel inside & the fact that you used the yellow for that – perfect echoing of the scalloped edges of the flowers’ petals as well their colour. One can almost imagine one of the flowers on the front of the card opening her petals to display “SMILE.”
    That gorgeous red ribbon adds some more delightful texture & a touch of decadence.

    I like that stamp. I like the texture it gives the card but ironing off the emboss powder might look good to…gonna have to try it 🙂

    That looks so easy and so impressive. Can’t wait to try it. I have a ton of background stamps that I have not used yet!
