Some Cards...

Good morning! I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth! I took the kids down to TX to visit my parents. We had a wonderful time.

These are some cards I made for the lady who won my cards in the scholarship auction. The first is a CASE of a Michelle Zindorf card. The neat thing about Michelle is she does a whole tutorial for every card she does. I have done a similar card before, but I'm better at it now and I'm really pleased with how this turned out. Colors are Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point. Flourishes are made using Cricut. Bottom edge is pierced.
In this card I was going for a paint chip effect; as usual I am a couple of years behind the trend, but it seemed like a good technique for a masculine card. CS colors are Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, and Ballet Blue (all retired), and Night of Navy. Ink is N of N. Stamp is SU.
This last card uses PTI Plum Pudding CS, ink and ribbon. Flowers are ret. SU set, sent. is PTI. Vellum is PTI (I think it's called basket weave or something like that--it has a texture to it--very pretty, but almost opaque).
Well, thanks for stopping by today. As always, comments are greatly appreciated!
