Vintage Summer Garden Card Class

I've been dealing with some health issues for the past couple of months, but have finally gotten enough energy and mojo back to create some new projects.  I will be teaching another card class next month at our local craft store.   With inspiration from the beautful summery weather we've been enjoying, I decided to create a couple of summer garden cards. 

I used two vintage stamp sets from Crafty Secrets for these cards.  The first card is a little garden scene.  The second one is intended to give the feeling of vintage cameo jewelry. 

Stamps used:  Crafty Secrets - Garden Girls #SL21, Wildflowers #SM18
EK Success Punch used - Rose Bush 2 in 1 Edger Punch
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels Twenty-One and Petite Ovals Small
Platinum and clear embossing powders

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Hope you're having a great week.

Such pretty cards. I love the layout of each. The first one is so charming (images) and your coloring on both is great.

Both cards are fantastic, though the top one made me gasp in delight. Beautiful scene, gorgeous coloring.
