Stylishly Challenging For Me

Hi there , you're just in time to see my latest creations . I had said earlier, that I was not into embelishing cards very much. And I did say, also, that I would make an effort and try adding some bling , maybe, or more than one embellishment.
For the 'Just For You' card I used a wooden flourish , some flower embelishments with brad centres, some ribbon and a stamped image with greeting . The background image on the right was my favourite addition. It is a large background stamp, Floral, from SU.
'The Happy For You' card is my favourite one. The flower is fussy cut from the other side of the background paper on the card front . I cut out three images , adhered one complete flower to card front , cut around green petals on the second and 3D that onto the first , cutting around the yellow petals for the last 3D addition. Behind the bow I used a hat pin and beads from Pretties Kit from SU.
So here they are !

My version of stylish cards . Hope you like them. Shirley-anne.
