I love embossed backgrounds it is my newest craze and I love that you used them on both your cards. And that crow! :)

Bonnie aka raduse said...

Love that first card! The second one is definitely a new way to use the seed packet. I'll have to remember that next time.

Eemeli said...

Love them both! Bright colors are just what these kind of rainy days need. Thanks for cheering my up ^^

Two very cute cards, Karen. I love how you made the large sunflower on the first one.

Marion said...

Fabulous cards and I just love how you did the sunflower one. Brilliant idea for cutting round just the face and popping on that flower.

Lynn McAuley said...

Love that fabulous layered sunflower you created to showcase the sunflower seed packet!! Outstanding design, Karen!! Wonderful work with the layered packets as well!

Vicki said...

I think cutting out the face and attaching it to your own flower is so cute...and the combination of seed packs on the second card is perfect..
