Keeping Busy?

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are all well and busy crafting. I've been visiting your blogs as and when I can over the last few days and there have been some beautiful projects to fire up the creative juices.
I have been creating myself but I can't show most of them just yet, some are DT cards and some are for Birthdays that haven't happened yet so I can't spoil the surprise for the recipients. I can however share these two little lovelies....


Both of these are made from a Papermania Decoupage pack
On the first one I added some die cuts to the design -
Marianne Designs Creatables LR0279 & LR0280
MFT Rolled flower die
Joy Crafts flower die
I cut these die cuts and the flowers from the peach coloured packaging and inked through the die (the corners) to give it dimension. This backing card was the perfect match and if you look closely you can see the little butterfly design from the pack.
The second card just has the die cut shapes from the pack although I did make the rosette.
Aren't these images so girly? Handbags and dresses, what more could a girl ask for? :0)
