Thanks....

Good morning!
We are trying to stay cool over the next few days...we are having a heat wave here in NYC. What better way to stay occupied in the air conditioning than to make cards!

I have two to share with you, for two different challenges.

Colour Q                              









Here is my card...
I used the sentiment and border stamps from W Plus 9. The black ink is Memories. All other inks are from Color Box ( canary, true blue, wild hare and scarlet). The white cardstock is Papertrey Ink. Gems are Recollections.


This next card is for
CR84FN                                         









Here is my card.....

All stamps are from Flourishes. All cardstock are from Papertrey Ink. I stamped the background using vintage cream ink from PTI. The black ink is Memories, pink ink is Color Box bubblegum. I created faux stitching with a white gel pen. I added liquid  pearls in white opal to the center of some flowers. The oval die is Spellbinders, the flourish die is Memory Box. The ribbon is from Michaels. The gems are Recollections.

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you stay cool and safe in the heat!

Michelle

I 'oohed' and 'aahed' over both, Michelle! I have that same Wplus9 set you used, and love how you did the borders back to back to create lace!

The bright pink card is beautiful, too!
