I have made two more cards on the theme of flowers, the first one using Diva Daisy.

I layered some patterned paper onto violet card then cut a strip of the same card with MD die CR1273. I cut some contrasting paper with the same die, layered it on the card and glued it across the middle. I added some gold braid across the top tied in a bow.
I coloured Daisy with Spectrum Noir and layered onto the card. I cut the flowers and leaves with MD dies LR0142, LR0156 and LR0192. I gold embossed the sentiment and layered it onto the card. I finished with 3 small punched butterflies and gems for the flower centers.

I am entering this in the Marianna Design Divas challenge Flowers

Floral 2

The second card  I made using lilac coloured card which I cut on 2 corners with MD die LR0200 and the other 2 corners with a corner punch.

I cut the doily center for the image with MD die LR0130 and cut a butterfly out of the same card with MD CR1205 for one corner. In the opposite corner I used MD dies LR0156 and LR0192 to cut some leaves, added some punched leaves and flowers,  yellow roses and a white organza bow. Finished with small pearls on the flowers and butterfly and added the sentiment.

Hello Summer

I've been making the most of this fine weather and enjoying the garden. It's a pity I can't take my craft room outside. However back to card making, the theme for Design Divas and In the Pink is coincidentally flowers, so this is the card I have made. I have again used a Don and Daisy stamp, this time I used Daisy in the Sun.

After colouring with Spectrum Noir pens I added a little flower soft in the grass and layered onto pink card then added a Marianne Design small rose corner LR0215.
I layered some floral paper onto pink card turning back one corner and fastening with a flower brad. I then used the reverse pattern of the paper to cut a strip with the MD border die LR0201. I added some lace and after attaching the topper to the card I added the rose trim.
I cut the flower and leaves out of pink and red card with MD LR0156 added the sentiment and finished with pink gems.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-
