Dainty Love

Hi my lovely friends!
Today I wanted to share 2 cards I made...

I am loving both cards! 

I made this card first.
I watercolored with Gumball Green and Pool Party on watercolor paper, then die cut that  oh-so-pretty flower, then die cut the sentiment slightly overlaying on the stem. I sewed the watercolor paper on the So Saffron patterned paper, also glued little pieces around the flower and sentiment because they were flopping around. Then I placed those excess pieces from die cutting inside the negative images.

I die cut those cute little hearts in some washi paper from Stampin' Up!, I didn't realize they were self-adhesive, how convenient! 

Now onto my 2nd card...
As you can see, I used the die cuts from the first card. It seemed such a waste to just throw them out! All they needed was some pretty patterned paper to go with, and I found a perfect match! It really didn't need anything fancy, so I die cut my fringe, then sewed it with my watercolored die cuts.

I did add a few gold sequins. 
They're so tiny, they didn't disturb my dainty design ;-)
