Two Very Different Cards

I've been having fun making cards & ended up with 2 that are very different.  First up is my entry for PTI MIM Lots of Dots.
I used Twig Wreath stamps (purchased Aug 2015) with Soft Stone cardstock & these inks: New Leaf, Green Parakeet, Pale Peony & Delicata Silvery Shimmer.  My dots are Nuvo Drops Silver Moondust, Key Lime & Rosewater.
I added some tiny splatters with Distress Stain brushed pewter & tied on cord colored with a COPIC to match.  I'm also entering my one layer card at Retro Rubber & WAW.
Edited to add: Summery wreath, so I'm also entering SSS Work It Wednesday.

Next is my first card using SSS Kaleidoscope Background colored with my new inexpensive gel pens to add the bright colors. 
SSS Painted Thanks die cut was backed with black fun foam.  The pens work great for making dots & even though it's a little streaky, I like the word (cut from black cardstock) colored with them. 
The panel was mounted to a slightly larger white card & a few clear sequins finish it off.  I'm entering SSS Flickr Challenge 99, ModSquad, SSS Monday & 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
