Festive Friday #42 & Fusion Hardwood Florals

I have a couple of cards to share today. This first one is inspired by both the photo and sketch from the Fusion Card Challenge Oct 9 Hardwood Florals.

As soon as I saw the photo of the lovely daisies, I pulled out my MFT daisy dies, but instead of die cutting three daisies the same size, I made three different size flowers. The flowers are mounted on a purple panel stamped with IO Wooden Plank image.

The flowers didn't leave much room for a sentiment at the bottom of the panel, so I decided to continue with an asymetrical approach to the sketch. Pushing the panel to one side gives me lots of space for the vertical sentiment.

This second card is for the Festive Friday Challenge #42, where we have been given this gorgeous scene for inspiration.

I have a couple of cards underconstruction, but thought I would go ahead and post this super clean and simple version tonight.

I picked up this Memory Box Poinsettia die on my summer vacation and adore the tiny size.

I love the way it sits in the middle of the PTI Joy word die. A little Wink of Stella adds a subtle touch of shine.

Thanks for stopping by,
