Anywho, for the light blue/brown card we used the Punches Plus brass template to both emboss and punch around the square where we'd stamped the little flower from the equally awesome Blooming With Love stamp set (I keep telling myself, I already picked up some flowers in vases sets, and have topiary $1 stamp from Mikes'; do I REALLY need this set?! BUT it keeps calling to me!). I like the effect.
The "celebrate" card used some cute stamps too ... and we watercolored the elephant, then used markers for the flowers. MY elephant has white toenail polish, in case you didn't notice! LOL! We used the Crop-A-Dile to emboss a few circles below that stamp. Both cute ... and quick ... and simple cards! Thanx again, Crystal - both for the cards and letting my Mom, who's up visiting for the weekend, participate today!
