PTI 9th Anniversary Celebration, MFT Wednesday Sketch & Fusion

Today, I have a couple of cards to share.... for a couple of challenges.

First up is a card that I made for the current Fusion Challenge {Paper Hearts},
where I used the sketch:

using this colour combination by Kay Miller:

Here's my card:

I stamped my flowers (from Papertrey Ink's Bloomers) onto their coordinating diecuts
in summer sunrise/orange zest & lovely lady (which I substituted for sweet blush)/raspberry fizz.
I stamped the leaves (from Wplus9's Spring Blooms) in limeade ice.

I cut a strip of Crate Paper patterned paper for the side of my card,
on which I stamped my sentiment from KIS: Birthday.

where I was inspired by this card by Kay Miller:

I love how Kay inked part of the word diecut like that -- it's so pretty!
I decided to do the same thing on my card, but on a KIS: Frame instead,
using this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge:

Here's my card:

I  stamped my sentiment, using PTI's Phrases and Praises stamp set.
The flowers (MFT's Fall Florals) were stamped onto coordinating diecuts 
in the colour combos that Maile Belles shared 

Here's a close up:

I actually diecut the frame three times: once from white cardstock, which I inked with aqua mist
and my blending tool, and twice from aqua mist cardstock, which I stacked together 
to add a little dimension and stability to my frame.

Thanks for looking!
