Mint., Chocolate, and Cream

Colour Create Time!!!! The colours this week were chosen by the very lovely Heather:

Mint, Chocolate, and Cream - Oh my goodness! Look at that picture!  Yum!

And there is a fabulous sponsor, Michelle's Scrapbooking:

Please head on over to Michelle's to check out her fabulous selection of products.  We also have a wonderful guest designer, Victoria.  I LOVE Victoria's style!  If you have never gone to her blog, you must head over there.  She is sooooo talented! 

Here is my first card:
I made this card with a friend in mind - I thought the sentiment was so beautiful.  Incidentally, I am submitting this card to the Just Us Girls sketch challenge this week as well.  Here is the sketch:

I used the iTop for the brads on the left side.  I stamped the cardstock for the brads as well as the flowers with the Papertrey Ink Background Basics Text Style stamp.  And I added some little gems to the center of the flowers cause I gotta have my bling!

The second card is a simple little birthday card.

The flower stem stamps are from Papertrey Ink Blooming Button Bits set.  And the sentiment is from PTI Say It With Style.  Here are some close-up pictures.

I hope I have been able to inspire you with these cards today!  The colours really are fabulous!   If you really want some inspiration, check out the other design team members blogs:
