My card above is made with the new set called Harvest Blessings.  I just love this set!  Sunflowers are so pretty!  I masked three of the sunflowers from the five that are in the image and colored them with copic markers.  I did this twice so that I could cut out the flowers and leaves and pop them up a little bit!  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the sentiment.  I made the cute little bow with my Bow Easy!  The cuttlebug backgrounds are Victoria and part of the Preserves Collection.

And here is my second card!



I used the new set called Don't Worry for this card.  Worry is something I struggle with so much!  I know the sentiment and scriptures will speak to many of you out there too!  I wanted to make this a happy card, so I used that cute Cuttlebug folder called Bloom Dots.  I colored the flowers with copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment over the blooms and then stamped it again with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing  powder for a little bit of a shadow effect.  Again I used my Bow Easy for the little bow, and I added brown Flower Soft to the flower.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my projects today. 
From here, hop over to the superbly talented Chris to be inspired and blessed!

Love the richness of the first card with all the texture - beautiful, and the soft color pallet of the second with dimention by use of the flower soft. And I haven't even gotten to the wonderful new sets, which I am absolutely in love with, to say nothing for the brilliant idea to incorporate dies as well. Fabulous. TFS
