Hello and CCC04 Sketch

I have fantastic cards for you today featuring layers of beautiful flowers.
The stamps are from the Flower Patch bundle and I must stay it is an all time favorite set! 
I love photopolymer stamps and I love stamps with with dies or punches that make it oh so easy to perfectly cut them out.
Here's this weeks sketch:

And here are the TWO cards I made!!

 I love the bold colors and graphics on these cards. 
This one features the Sweet Taffy DSP and Back To Black DSP on Old Olive card stock.
 I love the red, purple, yellow green and black together. 
 And after giving it much thought and playing around with different ideas for greetings I decided the "hello" was all it needed. I played around with tucking it under the flowers but it just didn't work so in the end I wrapped the banner with wisteria wonder bakers twine. 
Just what it needed!
And did you notice the fringe? 
I mentioned a several post back how happy I was that I added the fringe scissors to a previous order and I'm still just as happy! I love the texture and FUN that it adds to the card.
As I was flipping though my DSP I saw these big bold polka dots and just couldn't decided between the purple or yellow...So I didn't decide! I made TWO!

There's not much to add about this card since it is basically the same as the first card. 
The large polk dot background is from the Flower Pot DSP, I used the same Back to Black DSP as on the first card and on this one I had used a scrap of the large purple polka dot as on the first card for the fringe until I had a major glue mishap!
As in glue oozing out from under the fringe and when I tried to clean it up I ended up tearing the fringe. After carefully taking the layers apart I added this smaller polk dot instead. It's all layered on garden green card stock.
It was touch and go for a while but it all worked out!

Happy Stamping!
