Crumb Cake and Pretty in PInk !

Good afternoon ! 
I'm now well into the swing of blogging again ( and about time too , I hear you say !!! ) There are two reasons why I am getting my act together - the first is that rejoining SU has given me renewed enthusiasm and I have the loveliest upline in my good friend Peg ! The second is that I have had a major sort out of most of my craft stuff and had a reorganise and a throw out ; this served two purposes - I now know what I have and I want to play with it !!!
I have been using my two favourite SU colours for todays cards - crumb cake ( can't seem to make a project without using it ! ) and pretty in pink ! 

Supplies list for both cards :
Stamps : Mr and Mrs , Ex Libris ,Established Elegance, Apothecary Art
Inks : pretty in pink, crumb cake and soft suede
Punches / Dies : delicate doilies sizzlit, labels collection framelit, scallop trim border punch
Accessories : crumb cake taffeta ribbon, pearls, crotchet trim .
Card stock : very vanilla and pink pirouette

The first card was designed as a wedding invite or save the date card ; it is made from half a sheet of A4 (cut vertically so you get two out of the sheet) - if you do this, the entire Ex Libris stamp fits the front and then can be used either way ! The second card is half of a 12 x 12 sheet . The oval design on this card is stamped by using an oval frame ( die cut waste from any will do - SU have an oval accent Bigz die which would be ideal ! ) and low tacking it to the card front and then stamping within the frame to create this delicate border which was then accented with some ivory pearls . I don't own a Simply Scored but that is how a similar rosette could be achieved ! I had to cut down the smaller die cut doiliey to fit the back of the motif from Established Elegance but I was really pleased with the end result ! 
Off to find another stamp set I haven't used yet ! I do hate the mounting though !!! 
Thank you for your visit and do stop by again !
