A few Carta Bella cards

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you are having a good one. Just want to share a couple of cards I made using the left overs of my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne.  I played with the beautiful Carta Bella 'Beautiful Moments' collection this month and I loved every minute of it. My cards are quite plain and nothing fancy, but that's just how I like it.
 I used my Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace' punch for the first 2 cards. Just love how feminine it makes it.  The birdies in this collection are really cute. :)
The idea for the next card is unfortunately not my own idea. I got it off Pinterest. The butterfly was cut using the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Butterfly' die.  Love how it turned out.
The rose on this one is one of the element stickers from this range that I stuck onto cardstock, then cut around it and 'lifted' it using foam tape.
That's all for now.  Don't forget that you still have until the end of the month to participate in the July Sketch Challenge at Handmade by Suzanne.  There is a $40 store voucher up for grabs and the winner gets determined by a random draw! BUT you have to be in it to win it.  Here is a reminder of what the sketch looks like.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  Have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time.
