Something older but new to you!

Do you wonder what  my title means?
Well I just realized, I have 3 cards that I have made for Cheery Lynn Designs and I have never blogged about them here yet.
So you are going to get a treat today since I am sharing 3 for the blog post of 1!
I made these cards as submissions to a publication.  Two of these got chosen, so I was very excited!  The publication has come and gone, so I am sharing these now.
This was a card I made for the Easter holiday.  
I just love the background on this.  
I used the Wittle Weavers and Stitcher Plate Large Circle for the background.
The "sun" was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.


 The "sun" was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.


The butterflies are made from Exotic Butterflies Small 2 dies.


I love using those Wittle Weaver's for the background of cards.


 This card was made for a theme called Haberdashery and Dress Making.
I used the Wood Grain Embossing Plate for the background.



The dress is made from layers of paper cut with the Anastasia Border.  Behind the dress I used the Ribbon Eyelet Border and Buttons 1.


 Lastly I used the scallops from the Border Carnival for my corners and also used the following dies to finish off this card.  Optimistic Font 1/2", Pretty Petals and Zig Zag Ric Rac.


Lastly I have this simple but elegant card!  Oh and it happens to match our current challenge which is Add A Flourish.  Have you entered yet?
For this card, I used my favorite embossing plate, Black Eyed Susans.


I also used the following dies on this card:  Zig Zag Ric RacRibbon Eyelet Border, Fanciful Flourish and Medium Rose.


So there you go, 3 cards that would be perfect for holidays we have coming up! 
Easter April 8th.
Mothers Day May 13th.
National Sewing Day July, 17th.

Once again, be sure to check out the details to our Add A Flourish challenge, HERE.

Jeannie, I actually have two of these cards. The first and last, and I have to say they are so much better in person even than you can see in the photos. They have been very much admired at the shows!
