A wreath card

I saw this and wanted to try it. It is surprisingly easy and unique.

And then, I played with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder. This will be for a wedding we will attend in July. The colors of the wedding invite are (translated into SU! colors) Elegant Eggplant and Kiwi Kiss. I rubbed Whisper White craft ink pad over the embossed flowers, like that look.

This last card is for my son's upcoming 5th birthday and LSC221 here, which is making anything circle. I stamped the train around the scalloped circle die cut.

I hope you like these, thanks for stopping by.
