Color Throwdown #345 ~ Thanks

Hello~ I'm still working on thank you cards so forgive me if they get repetitive. These two cards were made using the colors from Color Throwdown.

I wanted to try something different and outside of the box for me so I went with monotone flowers and added the color elsewhere on my cards.

I used PTI's "You've Been Framed Oval" and "Rosie Posie" to create this first card. They are set on a panel cut from MFT's Blueprints #20. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp "Beautiful Words".

For my second card, I cut the printed panel using MFT's Blueprints #20 and stamped the flowers from PTI's "Sweet Life" again, in monochromatic colors. I used the oval from the center of the first card to add the sentiment with stickers because my heat gun died and I couldn't heat emboss my sentiment in white like I wanted to. (Guess I need to add a new one to my wish list.)
I'm also adding one of these cards to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
