2 New cards

I loved the colors over at the Play Date Cafe this week:

So pretty!  I made 2 cards with these colors.  Here is the first:

I hand-stitched the stem and the background flower, and I crocheted the darker purple flower.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings, stamped in PTI Plum Pudding ink.  Here is a close-up picture:

For the second card, I used the colors from the Play Date Cafe along with the sketch from Card Patterns:

Here is the second card:

I decided to sew another flower for this card, but not include the crocheted flower on top.  Here is a close-up of the flower.  I added the gems to the center for some bling.

The patterned strips of paper at the bottom are all K&Company.  I added some twine with glass beads.
