Two Easter Cards

I don't use a lot of green--mostly for leaves & stems. However, it is a soothing color & a symbol of new life.  So I decided to use a lot of green for an Easter card.  The Ellen Hutson Bold Blossom flower dies are cut from self-adhesive fun foam which I glittered with Elizabeth Craft Cool Highlight--my favorite glitter!  The die cut strip is by Pretty Pink Posh & so are the clear dots. I used a very old sentiment by a local company no longer in business.  My layout was based on the sketch at FMS, but I left out one layer. I'm entering these challenges: Chouxchoux, EH Mix It Up, Double D, Fusion, Time Out & Die Cut Divas.

Next is my card for the MFT sketch & MFT color challenges, which I've been missing lately.
I used MFT Prima Donna Petals & Leaf-Filled Flourish dies.  An old Cuttlebug embossing folder provides more texture & the sentiment from a local company no longer in business was stamped in VersaMagic Gingerbread.  Fun to use a color combo I wouldn't have come up with on my own. I'm also entering AAA Cards & SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  8. Two beautiful cards, Greta. I especially like the first card. It is a very unusual and stiking take, to have the flower white and the card base green, and I love how you have mixed things up a bit.
