Cut it out!

I haven't been able to join in the last couple of weeks.... been so busy! But had to have a go this week.
The theme this week at LIM is "Cut it out" I've done quite a few of these lately and love the effect.
I used a straightforward A5 card blank and cut an extra single piece the same size. The sentiment I printed straight on to the card blank, and with the extra piece cut an aperture with Nellie Snellen circle dies  and  a border at the bottom of the piece with a Martha Stewart  punch. I then punched 16 flowers to go around the circle and finished them off with pale turquoise pearls just to give a bit of colour!

After making it I decided it was a little too plain to give, so decided to add a couple of parchment butterflies........I'll leave it to you whether it improves it or not.........I'd like to hear your comments!

5 x 9 card length ways

 After making seven 8 x 8 easel cards last week I found myself with some odd sized card blanks........remnants from an A3 sheet. So decided to try something a bit different to use them up.
Two similar cards using the new frames from The clipart fairy called Yummy frames. The cats are also from her site called Springcats.
