These are both amazing, friend! LOVE the CAS feel of the first and that bright blue bloom on the second! Sorry to have been so quiet lately--a small car accident took over my life for a bit there! HUGS! :) Mynn xx

#1 is striking with the simplicity of the emboss dots and that splash of bold color & dimension in the sentiment. As always love the graphic look in #2 with the color & design placement of the elements. TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

Beautiful cards Petra. Love the black betters. What is the name of that die? The washi strips look great... also love the sweet little flowers. The second card is so pretty. That rolled flower is amazing. Have a wonderful weekend!
