Pretty spring flowers

It's finally Friday and the end of a long and busy week for me.  I had
lots of fun at work this week and met alot of amazing people as always
and it put me in great spirits so my crafty mojo was really good too.

Today i have one of many projects to share this month from Crafty
Secrets and i am really having lots of fun printing my own things with
their digital files.  It is so nice to be able to print another if you mess
up or if you just need a bit more for a brilliant idea that you come
up with in the middle of the night.

I made this pretty lilac flower card to send to my mother in law
because she really loves these pretty flowers and so do I.  I printed
the papers from both the Vintage patterns CD and the Vintage Topography 
CD #3.  Each of the layers is a subtle print that is from the layer
on the very bottom of the card.  The die is from Spellbinders
and is called Grate Effect.  I cut and embosssed it in ivory so that it looked
like a pretty trellis with the flowers in the front.  And to finish it
i added pretty satin ribbons in pink and lavender to match it.

And i also did a second card with one of the other flowers on
the sheet that i printed out.  This one is a pretty sunflower and i 
went a totally different way by using aqua's and tans to go with it.

I love these colors together and it really sets off the adorable little bird
and the flower in the picture.  And the pretty bias ribbons from RRR
are perfect with it too.  I think this one will go over to my grandma this
week with a long letter to say hi and catch up with things.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!
