All three pre-stamped images were in my file folder from ages ago, and I recently re-discovered them.

The first one is a gate card accented with yellow Stickles in the crocus centers, a silver cord bow and some purple gems. The blooms were colored with a purple marker, and the edges of the scalloped square were sponged with purple ink.

The orange card was first clipped with a postage scissor and double mounted. The blossoms were done with SU "elegant eggplant" markers for the stripes, and finished with purple chalk over them. I used orange chalk for the centers. A rick-rack die cut the bottom of the orange gingham, and the piece that was cut off is placed above the white ribbon. Purple Hero Arts gems provide the accents.

Finally, the last card was done with yellow markers and yellow Stickles for the centers. The green dsp and yellow cardstock were accented with a Martha Stewart lace punch. Green and yellow embroidery floss provide the final touch.

Enjoy! (Double click for a closer look.)
