a card or 2 or 3

This is a wonderful sketch from the OWH Stars n Stamps blog, but this particular card is not going to OWH...I'll make more :)

 2 views...Card stock, Stampin' Up and Other, velvet flower and leaf and rhinstone brad-K&Co. Black rhinestone All My Memories, black matte jewel from Joann's, the 2 rolled flowers by me.
Prisma color pencils and blender pencil, Stamps- sentiment: My Sentiments Exactly, little starburst by Block Heads Stamps, Main collage image(Tin Can Mail) by Inkadinkadoo.
 The inch squares and the sentiments are raised up on foam tape.

and another:
 This is a 5.5" square card made with Neenah solar white card stock, Matted with Mrs. Grossman's textured pale yellow card stock, The pink cs is Bazzill and the green is Stampin' Up. the colors aren't exactly as they seem here, but the green and the yellow are pretty close. I used some vintage white lace, and ribbon from Ribbon and Bows Oh My! for my bow. (which is a little darker than the green paper, but not as dark as it looks here). Scalloped border punch by Stampin' Up, Embossing folder-Stylized flowers by Cuttlebug, and 1.5" scalloped circle punch by EK Success (I crumpled this up really well, then snipped it at each scallop about .25" the 4 quarters, I snipped a little further in. I used glue dots, snipped the shank off this great faceted button and used glue dots on that as well) Prismacolor pencils, and Momento tuxedo Black ink. Stamps: sentiment-Stampin' Up, Balloon Donkey by Whiff of Joy (party animals collection) 
(smudges seen are on camera window it turns out, sorry)
 Inside of card, more of the scalloped circles, and starburst stamp by Block Heads Stamps. Sentiment by Stampin' Up
