Three thank you cards

I've mentioned earlier this week that I have some thank you cards to make.... so I decided to tackle all of these using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Making Garland, as well as my My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline 6x6 paper pack. Here are the cards that I made:


In addition to the MME patterned paper, I used PTI stamps (iconic images) and dies (tag sale #5, heart border). The little pearls are Hero Arts.


On this card, I used PTI cardstock (aqua mist), stamps (botanical silhouettes) and dies (love lives here, heart border die -- the negative left over from my first card.)


And for this card, I used PTI cardstock (harvest gold), stamps (communique sentiments) and dies (beautiful butterflies).

Thanks for looking!

Leigh,
Each card a masterpiece. Just loved studying every detail, from color choices to the dies you used. Way to go!

LOVE. THESE. Each one more than the other. Just so happens I have that paper pack, too, and have had such a difficult time with it. These, of course, are wonderful and now I'm feeling the urge to use some of those papers too!

A three for one deal! What a nice surprise for us : ) OK, I have to pick a favorite ... it's #2, the adorable house card. The colors you used together are so happy!

I absolutely love your stitching. Your attention to detail is fantastic. [I've got this paper pad too and you've got my mind turning with ideas!] Thanks for the inspiration!

Leigh, you've got quite the knack for clean design and putting patterned papers together (are you and Betsy related?? :)
I love how you sew on your cards - and perfectly too! Love to view your beautiful work!
