Lace & Pearls OR Bling???

I designed these 2 cards using the Mojo Monday sketch#236 and an idea from Tamra Pope  for the beautiful flowers created using the exclusive CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. Go check out her blog (by clicking on her name) for a fantastic tutorial!! I couldn't decide between going with pearls and lace, which I thought went well with the Lucy paper pack, or the full out BLING (and I love bling!) so I made one of each....both from the same paper pack. How versatile is that!

This is also my entry for the Great Impressions Lots of Flowers challenge.

So here's the Pearls and Lace.....

Here's a close up of the flower--isn't that fantastic! There's 5 different layers to this baby!

And now for the Bling!

On both cards I used the coordinating ink on the dry embossed cardstock to better highlight the embossing. I had a hard time putting the sparkle flourish on the "bling" card--not that it's hard to use, the "hard" part was in using it on something I'm going to give away. I love these sparkles, luckily I know where I can get more!
These are going to make terrific Mothers Day cards!
