Best cards to date...

This is the card i made for my sister-in-law's birthday. I used Papertrey's In Bloom and Background Basics: Text Style stamp set with Hibuscus Burst, Melon Berry, and New Leaf paper; Hibuscus Burst Ribbon; True Black and New Leaf ink. I stamped the leaf pattern overtop the stamped text background for the leaves, which I got from Nichole Heady and Dawn McVey had created a card with the In Bloom set using these colors, so I thought of combining the two for this one.

This is a congratulations card I made for my counsler, who got promoted. I used all Papertrey supplies to create this card. Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate, and White cardstock; Ocean Tides, White, and Smokey Shadow ink; Berry Sorbet buttons; and stamped images from Everyday Button Bits and Background Basics: Text Style

I cut thin pieces of dark chocolate paper to thread through the buttons. I was a little upset to give this card away because I honestly think this is my best card to date :D
