Welcome to day 2 of the hop!  Today I have two cards to share.  After polling my people I have mixed opinions on which one is the best!  I will let you be the judge!

I heat embossed the image and then sponged ink around the embossing.


For this one I changed up the sentiment and the color and added some water spots.


I thought I would share this one with you in case you haven't seen it.  I created this for a SCS challenge this week to use a different fold.  This is called a Flap card and it's really fun to create.  I used 2 small sticky velcro dots to keep the card closed and so far they seem to be doing a good job!


The inside: The Humming bird is a gorgeously detailed stamp.  I stamped it in brown on an envelope the other day and it really made the envelope look beautiful.

  7. Angie - 3 lovely cards - I cannot decide between those two different pastel combinations - they are both really pretty. Nice to know about stamping in brown on a envelope - must remember to add those little extras more often. Hope the patient is OK.

  12. Although it is very hard to pick, I think I like the one with the blue background. Both are so gorgeous! I love the idea of embossing then sponging around the images! I think it gives a card just such a beautiful, finished look when you stamp on the inside of it, and the hummingbird is perfect!
