For my card above I used the wonderful How Sweet the Sound set for my sentiment. I also used the GORGEOUS Layered Lacey Squares dies. *Swoon*! I love this new die set and of course, I'm in love with the stamps too! Past releases I used include Beautiful Borders dies (cut 2 so both front and back are on the lacey border), Gilded Gate Die, Fancy Foliage Dies, and the Shabby Rose Paper Collection. I love the softness of this paper pack! To embellish this card I used some gauze, flowers from Wild Orchid and Prima, and the flourish from the Fancy Foliage Die set. I kept the colors just blue and white for a calming feel.

For my second card, I used the new Umbrella Die, the April Showers stamp set, and the Shabby Rose Paper Collection. I wanted to create a sort of Victorian look to my umbrella/parasol, so I cut the base umbrella from brushed gold paper, layered with the tiny rose print from the Shabby Rose Paper Collection, and then added a little lace to the bottom. I heat embossed the sentiment in gold on another piece of design paper from the same pack, and backed it with more of the same lace. I embellished the umbrella handle with a spray of tiny silk flowers and a hand died wrinkled seam binding bow. I wanted the paper to really show so I did not add tons of layers or "stuff" but chose some pearls from ZVA Creative. I like how it simple but feminine it came out.
