I love the Pink, Purple and the dark blues together.
First card with the dark background not sure about this one? Just a slight diff in the cards

I stamped the flower on watercolor paper twice with stazon black.
I watercolored the flower and background paper using my watercolor crayons love them, just wish I had more colors
I cut out the second flower and popped it
I added beads to the center with glossy accents
I colored the skittles with alcohol inks to match
Stamped the backgd with clear ink and than chalked to make it pop a bit using the same flower
Used the MS flower border punch
Nesties for the rectangle

Second Card
Everything is the same except I used decorative sissors for the mat

Norine, these are so beautiful! I love them both. I like how you layered your flowes and also the beads in the middle. The pinked and punched edges are also wonderful. How feminine!! Lovely
