Ok, now it's time to show you my creations!

This is one of my favorites. Can you believe I incorporated FOUR different products in this card?! That's pretty incredible considering it's a CAS card :) The flowers on the Bright Butterfly die cuts are stamped in black and are from Flower Power #1. The edges are inked in black, then popped up for dimension. The horizontal lines with the circles is from the Background Builders: Round in Circles set, stamped on Soft Stone cardstock, and then a layer of vellum is placed on top of it. Some grey rhinestones finish it off.

I used a Watercolor Technique I've never done before. It was very easy, and I'm pleased with the results. If I had more distress inks, I would have added more color to the flowers, but hopefully you can see the orangy color in the center of each flower, and then of course the pink.

Using a stamp from the Background Basics: Round in Circles set, I curved it on the acrylic block and stamped on angles to create kind of a party decoration look. Then, from the Label Love: Birthday set, I added a few polka dotted balloons to create a super festive Birthday card! The sentiment is taken from the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum set.
