Both cards use the Porcelain Prints DSP. It seemed perfect for the "mood" of the card. Both have Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon. The top card also has Certainly Celery CS. The flowers on the top card were inked with Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou ink. I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the centers. I usually don't use non-Stampin' Up! items for this blog since it is a business tool for me, but these flowers are really cool. I read about them on someone else's blog. they are a shimmery off-white color to begin with but you can sponge ink on them easily to match any project. They came from Michael's in the wedding section. They are meant to be table confetti! They come in a mini paint can and there are tons of them--for only $5 or so!
The second card is on a Bashful Blue base. I also used Sage Shadow CS to matte the quote. I paper peirced along the scalloped edge (done with the corner rounder) and by the quote. I stamped the butterflies from my Priceless set in Certainly Celery ink and then used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on them. I popped up their wings with dimensionals.
Anyway, I can't decide which to send. Which is prettier?
