Darling set of cards

This is another set of cards I made as a gift for Christmas. These are for my mom. She loves bright colors and lots of sparkle, so I thought these would be good for her. I hope she actually uses them this year! Last year I gave her a set that she refused to use. She said she is going to frame them. So this year I tried a simpler design in hopes these actually make the mailbox! These cards were totally inspired by this set of cards I favorited on SCS.
The colors were inspired by these fabulous Amuse shimmer couture papers. I won a pack of the paper, which is deliciously shimmery, during a contest on their blog. I wanted to keep a rainbow feel for the cards, so I selected six papers to make a rainbow. The layouts are basically the same in each card, but each one has the sentiment placed in a different circle. I made two thank you cards and the rest each have a different sentiment so they are an all-occasion set.
I popped the completed set and six envelopes into a PTI clear card box and finished them off with a tag and ribbon.
Stamps: Darling dots, Riveting, misc. SU sentiments
Ink: cool caribbean, tempting turquoise, kiwi kiss, pixie pink, real red, pumpkin pie
Paper: neenah white (card base), whisper white (circles) Amuse shimmer couture
Accessories: circle punches, ribbon
