A few days ago I said I was going to be making some more carnations, after all they are my favorite flower.  When I saw the The Paper Players challenge to make anything that brings spring to mind I couldn't resist, and the Stamping 411 Challenge was the perfect sketch to use for the idea I had going on in my mind.

Yesterday I also made this little 3x3 thank you for a friend.  

I guess the only downside to these cards is you'd have to mail them in a box!

If you didn't see my other post on how to make carnations and would like to see how, click here.  Oh, before I forget, I did use deckle scissors for these two cards, just to see if I liked it.  I think either way works!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
