Quick couple of cards...

I made these the other day and I quite like them. Tried a bit of distressing edges on the Tilda card and the other was to use up some scraps I had and try out a tip I saw online about using the 5-petal flower punch from SU to make different flowers. I liked it a lot, very easy to do and you wouldn't know it is from the same punch...
And I noticed that my Versafine inkpad has taken a beating. I forgot to put the lid back on a few nights ago and only replaced it the next morning *oops* and now it won't stamp that well anymore. Might have to buy a new one which is unfortunate, I am on a buying ban until I complete 50 cards! So far I have 6...
Well here they are, hope you like them:





I used Basic Grey "Urban Prairie" papers, Sizzix leaf stem die, Nestabilities Labels 3, Papermania brad, Craftworkcards dome paper circles and a sentiment from a set by My sentiments exactly (You can see my Versafine packing up there...)



I used the Urban Prairie papers again for this, edges distressed, Tilda image is coloured with pencils and blended with Sansador, flowers are Prima and attached with Papermania brads, a charm from my stash is hanging by a chain from one. The butterflies are cut out of a sheet of the paper and I added some faux stitching.
Thanks for stopping by today!
