More Pink and Aqua.

A couple more of my weekend cards.... using the pink and aqua theme again.  And another Z-fold card

Z-fold card 2


I finally got the Z-fold half die cut in the right place on my card.  The PP is from a Pink Paislee 6x6 pack.  I used a second sheet to cut the oval to fit inside the Floral oval.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.

And my second card is made up of scraps from the other cards.

Happy Day


I trimmed down the kraft card to fit my pink scrap of paper.  I used a Fiskars punch to edge the top.  The blue oval was cut out for the previous card, but I decided to use another piece of the PP.  The Floral oval was cut in black as a mat.  Added a sentiment from Kaisercraft.  The die cut words are a Simon Says exclusive.

I have entered the second card in A Blog Named Hero's Krafty challenge.

I am going to leave you with a picture of the orchid that is flowering on my back deck

Hello Dawn
Your Pink Paisley paper looks amazing on this Z-fold card, and combined with the lacy oval and sentiment is very attractive to the eye.... as is your Orchid.

I wanna be on that deck with you and your beautiful flowers, Dawn! Wow! Glorious. And your cards are so great - I need to try that fold. I particularly love your "scrap" card - what a great combo of elements for a super-great look.

Your orchid is beautiful Dawn and I think I sense it may have been an inspiration in your cards. I see you captured the beautiful pinks in both of your designs.
