Clarity Swirl in lemon & lilac and Anniversary flowers cards

Hi again, it's Easter Monday morning, and thought I'd do a quick posting before we're out and about, busy busy....

Eileen this is the card I was talking about...
My first posting is using the large clarity stamp inked in black archival. I layered lilac paper and lemon card onto an 8" square. Inked onto plain white copier paper using my brayer in various colours, cut into 3 strips, layered onto textured yellow card and placed them in a stepping design on the card.  I brusged over the design with pearl perfect pearls powder to give it a slight sheen. The corners are Cuttlebug and punched butterflies using Martha Stewart punch. I added flowers & ribbon to finish. 

My second posting is an anniversary card for my sister & Brother In Law, it's their 14th wedding anniversary today.  Again it's an 8" square card with scalloped borders. I used DCWV 12" paper mat and embellished with various die cuts from my stash.  Nesties hearts, Marianne creatables flowers & swirls, Cuttlebug corners, Martha Stewart punch to create a ribbon down the right hand side and various flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Have a great Easter, see you soon - Dee xx
