Two for Tuesday

I had time this afternoon to make a couple of cards for no particular reason. That makes a change form making Christmas cads and cards for upcoming Birthdays. The first card was made using the papers from Papermania aqua capsule collection and Miss Evie Heartwarmer from Squiggle Stamps. I went for a really big flower and petals for a change with a gorgeous spacer and brad. Sentiment is from LOTV mounted on a Nestie cute circle. I am entering this into the challenge at Squiggle and Paper Sundaes Cut it out

The second card is very different. The sweet fairy is LOTV. The background paper is from a new pad of Prima papers Fairy Flora mixed with lovely sparkly Papermania Henbury Lane. I used the MS fab punch on the bottom paper. Lots of sparkle on this one from the glitter on the image to the organza ribbon. Flowers are from Wild Orchid.
