Since I have several posts today I am going to combine these two. My first card is for our Pixie Cottage Challenge which is stitching. It can be real or faux so you all can join in. My image is a rose by Artish found here. I used a decorative stitch around the striped dp and then two more decorative leaf stitches between the stripes. Faux stitching around the image. The rose is water colored and cut out with a Spellbinder scalloped oval and matted on another. A punched a strip with the Ms looped punch and added the embossed center behind the image. Three little flowers with jewel centers and satin bow finish it. I was shocked when I went to post, in this pic the pinks look awful together they look great in person can't explain it.

This Second Post is for Passionately Artistic
For Passionately Artistic we are continuing our Spring flower theme. I love this lily image which I water colored and cut out.The spots on the lily are stickled. I matted the on a black and orange for a bold look. Some stitching and a sentiment to finish it off.

These are gorgeous! I love the pink on the first card with the soft bow to accent. The second is so pretty with those colors. The paper torn frame is cool!

Oh, they are both gorgeous, Davi. I am beginning to love that orange color so much. The pink looks very good. I know sometimes when I photo and tweak, they are still a bit different than they are supposed to be.

Those orange lilies are so real and POP right off the card! I normally am not a big fan of orange, but you did it so beautifully that I will need to try "orange" and get out of my comfort zone. Thanks for sharing two beautiful cards. The pink one is just as spectacular!

Love and blessings, Martha
