Sending Smooches....Thanks

Hello there!
Hope you are enjoying a fun but relaxing Memorial Day weekend!
I'm just stopping by to share a few cards with you for a few challenges...
I took my inspiration from The Card Concept
I love the look of the shade of pink, stripes and gold. I used the 'classy and elegant' style.
I created this card using Paper Smooches stamps and dies and followed the May Challenge Theme. I die cut  the Cute Cluster Die a few times from white cardstock. I inked up some cardstock with berry sorbet dye ink from Papertrey Ink than added a few splashes of water to give it a splattered watercolor look.  I die cut the panel with Avery Elle's wonky stitches die.
I embossed PS Smooches stamp set with gold embossing powder onto vellum cardstock. For a finishing touch I scattered some sequins and added pattern paper from Recollections.

For this next card I am playing along with


And I followed the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch

I used stamps from Paper Smooches, Green Thumb, Natural Beauties and Sentiment Sampler. I have been on a wreath making frenzy!!! I stamped the images with black ink from Memento and used Copic Markers to color.  I embossed the sentiment with white emossing powder onto vellum. I added a cord bow and white accents with agel pen.
Here are the Copic Markers I used:
Peapod: YG11, YG13, YG17, YG25, YG67
Radish: W0, W1, W2, R83, R85, R89, G07, G28
Carrot: YR04, YR07, W5, G07, G28
Tomato: R35, R27, R29, G07, G28
Tools: W0,W1,W2,W3,W4, E25, E29
I added shimmer with Wink of Stella
