Happy Anniversary!

Hi Crafters,
What a gorgeous day we had yesterday and today is set to be even better :)
I've just looked at the date and we are half way through April! - where did that go?!!
I have been busy in my craft room though completing lots of orders and thought I would share a couple with you today.
They each had certain remits to fill and I am pleased to say that both customers were very happy with their respective cards.
 With this one I used lots of Spellbinder dies to create the layers and a very pretty glittered rose background card. The corners are a La, La Land die.
This next one uses an ample sized Inkylicious stamp which I have heat embossed with silver EP.
The die is also from Spellbinders and is called 'Gold Elements One'. I have cut the corner die four times and turned it around to make a complete background with it. The inner mat that has the sentiment stamped on it is from the Deco Oval Trellis Base die set from Tonic.
This card was a devil to photo with all the silver mirri card on it, I kept getting a reflection and glare from my light, but after a few attempts I managed a decent picture I think.

Well I hope you all have a great craftylicious day!
See you soon,

Two beautiful designs Lorraine!
You must have had all the sun today then, it's been quite dull here, quite dark clouds, not that I minded to be honest, big shop day for me today so it was better to be a little cooler.
Enjoy the rest of your week
Hugs Jacee

What gorgeous designs - such different colours and styles but one thing they have in common is a real elegance to them :-)
You know how much I love pink but I would still be hard pressed to choose my fave of these 2 cards as they are both so delightful!

Big hugs, Kat xx
