Memory box flowers

Hi everyone.  So sorry for not posting sooner.  I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since my last post! Yikes! where does the time go?

I have actually 2 cards to share with you today.  Simple fast cards.  I needed a couple more cards to finishe off my friends card order, and saw that I had already had some backgrounds done when I was playing around with some stencils and just never got around to making them into cards.  I also had some new memory box dies waiting to be used.  This is what I came up with:

Memory box texture honey comb stencil, MB bountiful sunflower, sentiment from PTI,  PTI ink for the sunflower - spring moss, simply chartreuse, orange zest, classic kraft, harvest gold.  I'm not sure of the background stencil colours since this one was done over a month or more ago.  Card stock - SU marigold morning.

Memory box texture honey comb stencil , MB delightful peony outline, sentiment from PTI, distress inks - broken china & shabby shutters for the stenciling, PTI inks for the flower - spring moss, simply chartreuse, hibiscus burst. Card stock PTI Aqua mist

Finished off both cards with some ribbon, pearls and sequins. I added some glitter to the flower portion of the card using my wink of stella pen. My friend absolutely loved these!

Well I have no more cards in my stash to share so I best be getting creative.  It's kind of hard to be indoors when there is so much yard work that needs tending to, but I'll try to get something made to post next week.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh, my gosh! So pretty! You mentioned they were simple cards and they might have felt simple, but they don't look it -- other than that they are simply beautiful. Maybe they seemed that way because they were partly done. The flowers have so much dimension and texture and look great in the colors and shading you added. I especially love the honeycomb colors on #2... well, that whole combo with Aqua Mist, really. The first is the warm colors that I always love. I can't seem to stop scrolling back and forth between the two of them. Love!

Hi Pauline,

Love the cards. They look soooo fresh and make you feel happy.

Know what you mean about the time flying but your cards were worth waiting for. Thank you.

Much love,
