Hi there ~
I have 2 cards to share today...the first card is based on a sketch by Laurie Willison’s for the DeNami Sketch Challenge back in  January 2011, and I am entering it into this week’s Wedenesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp ~ Anything Goes 

I received this stamp set directly from the Lawn Fawn store, and one of the things that I love about ordering from them is the cute stamps they send as a ‘Thank You’. So, just for fun, that’s what I used for my sentiment on this card! It’s sometimes difficult to see the detail from the Impression Plate, so I’ve also taken a close-up:

My 2nd card is for this week’s challenge at Casology, and our Cue Card for this week is ‘Black’.
I used the inlaid technique for the poppy die cut, and embossed the sentiment with a glitter embossing powder to give it some sparkle.

Here is a close up of all the glittery goodness on this sentiment:

Well, that’s it for me today ~ Until next time...take care, and thanks so much for stopping by!

You do "cute" and "elegant" so well, Barb! Love how you used LF's free sentiment--it's perfect for your card, and CASology's cue word had me stumped
but you've created a beauty!

Your cards are delightful Barb. Love the little birds on your first one and the second one is classical.
