Here they are: Card #1 //embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js Instructions: 1. Card Base is white cardstock. 2. On a card panel, I sponged Cracked Pistachio and Spun Sugar distress inks on the edges. 3. I used various Simon Says Stamp stencils to layer over the sponged edges and sponged Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers distress inks. This adds layer and interest on the background. 4. I stamped the images from Altenew’s Wild Hibiscus stamp set all around the panel. 5. The sentiment Hey Love die from Simon Says Stamp Hey Love collection, die cut using black cardstock, stacked and glued and adhered on the centre of the panel. 6. The completed panel is adhered to the cardfront and embellished with Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. Here is a closeup of the card. //embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsCards #2.I actually started with this card for this challenge.
