Stamper's Dream...JustRite and Northwood

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

Did you all play Betty's awesome CC258 yesterday??? Well... I really loved this color combo and I had to make two more cards :)

For my first card I used the beautiful JustRite image from the Plant a Little Love Borders & Centers. It's back in the Stamper's Dream Store...just in case you've been waiting for it!!!


I inked the flower image in Memento Black and colored it with Copic Markers.

The corners on the bottom of my card were punched with a Corner Rounder. I don't recall what brand the DP is from...I found it in my leftover stash...sorry. I dressed the card up with some Lace Ribbon, some Soft Suede Dotted Ribbon that I flipped around. I added some Silver Pearls on top and some punched out Scallop Trim Borders on the DP edges.

****************************************

My second card was inspired once again by the CAS54 - Wishing for Spring. The layout is from this weeks MMSC41 Sketch.

Easter is only a few weeks away and I thought I'd start working on some of my *Easter* cards. This sweet image is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps called Bunny with Tulips. Isn't it cute???


I inked this image with Memento Black and colored it with Copic Markers.

The image was layered onto another White CS and I pierced right around it. My BG colors are So Saffron and the Green DP is from the KaiserCraft called Lilac Avenue Collection. The card was dressed up with some Ribbon, some Small and Large Silver Pearls.

Hope you like my *Spring* cards :) !?!

Have a wonderful day and I'll see ya soon!!!
