love both of these! I was trying to think of a bold b&w design, didn't think of something like the Baroque Motifs card, I wish I had as it looks great! But I think the second card is my fave, love those flowers and I love them done chalkboard style

Vickie said...

beautiful cards!!! My fav is the second one...I can hardly wait to get that set!!

Oh I think these are both great. If I had to choose just one I'd say the first because, purely on account of the fact that I'm jealous that I can't get the stamps used in the other card. I'm in Australia, blah!! Secretly though, I really do like the second, best.

Hi Brooke, Yes I am back in action again and so nice to hear from you! Love both your cards , the first because of the clever way you have used that stamp - I have never thought of using it to tile - and the second cos it has flowers LOL. Very very pretty!

Hugs, Jean

I LOVE your cards!!! I've been slacking on blog hoppin' this week due to daily stuff. Glad I made it through yours!!! You never disappoint me :)

Tegan said...

In the card making world, they often refer to elements of a card that "pop". I've never really understood, until now....
I can now honestly say that the tiny little green flower on the first card just POPS off the card!!!

Great work :)
