Sweet daisies

Hi all! Here are a couple more cards I made to sell at the Relay for Life last weekend. I am happy to say that three-quarters of my cards (about 30 in all) were sold at the event. Woohoooo!!!! It was a nice way to use my talents, use up my scraps and do a little something for a good cause. These were some of the last cards I made. I've had these pre-folded cards from Die Cuts with a View FOREVER! I also had some scraps from the delicious Sweet Always dp from Stampin UP on my table. Then I spotted THIS GORGEOUS CARD on Corie's blog and had to combine her idea with my supplies. The first card was inked in regal rose, then the edges were rolled in pumpkin pie. I actually stamped the image twice for another card, then misted the stamp with water and stamped two more times to get the image you see. A little bling, patterned paper and ribbon finish it off!
The second card also uses paper and bling, but I skipped the ribbon and the misting. I just inked the image in pumpkin pie, stamped once, then shifted the image panel slightly and stamped again to get the shadow effect. I really like how both of these turned out! I hope whoever bought them likes them too!
