Pretty petticoat

Good morning, Peeps!

Here's hoping you are all fab & having a good start to the day!

Today's cards are created from papers from Pink Petticoat - I just love Liz Armstrong's designs - so clear, clean & simply beautiful!  And, if you are in a hurry, these papers are quick to use and you've created a beauty in no time!  Obviously, if you have more time, you can add to enhance to your heart's content!

So, on to my first card - from Pretty Printemps  Pattern Paper Pack-Spring Bouquet - this set includes little chicks, bunnies, tulips & daffodils & you have a choice of printing onto a white background or a soft dust background. They really are very subtle & beautiful designs.

I printed off my tulip design onto a white background - added a ribbon from stash, 2 peel off flowers, placed on acetate & cut around, then coloured (on reverse)with gel pens & then added to ribbon on outside of card, and larger flower added to inside of right side corner.  I then added a sentiment from Pinkpetticoats 'tiny everyday sentiments'. Once I had my card how I wanted it, I then created a matching envelope (using the same backing papers) with my 'we r memory keepers envelope punch board   Finished the card of nicely!

My second card was created for my Son's of those..' Oh I haven't got Dad a Father's day card, can you quickly 'THROW' one together requests! Well, it wasn't hard to do, considering it was - I turned to Pink Petticoat again as I already had their Mr Moustache images, papers & sentiments ready to print off & use...

Here's the quick card creation!
