Thank You Cards

Happy Valentines Day! Damp & gloomy here, so we're just having a quiet day at home.  I finished 4 cards for the PTI Anniversary challenges last night & this morning. Creative, fun challenges this year!  I'll divide them up, so here are the first cards. 
Laurie's Card
This one is for Create Along with Us.  Laurie's black & white image on a watercolor background inspired me.  Also gave me a chance to try watercolor with Distress Stains that I saw done by Julie on The Classroom.  I used bundled sage & victorian velvet.  
The PTI stamps are Meadow Greens & Quilled Elegance.  I stamped with Versafine Smokey Gray & Onyx Black.  The stitching is Lil' Inker & I added splatters with Distress Stain brushed pewter. I'm also entering these challenges: CropStop, SSS Wednesday & Stamping Sensations.

Next is my thank you card for Saturday Snail Mail (which is going to the PTI Warehouse staff) combined with Color Pop Fortune Teller.  Have to admit--not sure I did the "flipping" correctly, but I would not have picked these 3 colors, so hopefully it's all good--haha!  
The images are all from PTI Twig Wreath & Quilled Elegance stamped in PTI Winter Wisteria, Ripe Avocado & Orange Zest along with HA Cup O' Joe for the sentiment.  Amazing the difference after using PTI canvas/linen impression plate.  I added a bit of orange Stickles to the flower centers.
