Cards and Sale

I used a sheet from the new Basic Grey Manila paper Pad to stamp the sentiments.  I love the small scale of this paper for just this thing.  The Spellbinders Petite Oval and Scallop dies were used to cut the Oval and the Scallop.  I added a piece of Lace from May Arts, along with a Paper Rose and black silk ribbon for a contrasting color.  The card is a 6.5x5.5.

Same as above.

Sympathy Cards
This week we found out that 3 of our friends had a death in their family, so I made time to make cards to send to them.
All the papers are from the Webster Packs.  The sentiment is from JustRite's Thinking of a You set.
I had to try Selma's vellum flowers for the bottom card and I think they turned out pretty snazzy. What do you think?  You can read her tutorial here.
