Three Cards for Monday

Happy Monday.  My first card is one I started yesterday, but did not get to finish until this morning.  I used this week's Retro Sketches RS#63 and am also entering it into this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show A Little Paper challenge, to use something from a small pad of paper.  I used a sheet from American Crafts Hip Hip Hooray.

I made a set of cards for The Card Set Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  I was inspired by this card on Susan's blog.  I used my brand new Memory Box Dogwood Blossom Outline die and sentiments from PTI Peaceful Garden.  I chose those sentiments because they seemed to compliment the delicate die cut.  I impressed each of the card fronts with the Canvas/Linen Impression Plate, and glued three tiny pearls on each flower center.

I packaged the cards in a slim plastic stamp box from PTI.

My last card is for this week's Seize the Birthday STB#16 as well as Simon Says Stamp and Show A Little Paper challenge, to use something from a small pad of paper.  I used papers from Pebbles Seen & Noted.
