Some Layers of Colors cards

It's no secret I love vintage shabby cards. However, my version is always more on the "clean and organized" side. I think that my cards look messy when I do collages which others seem to do so well. It was a struggle to get my card from yesterday to look right. I'm a little OCD, I guess, when I like the elements on my cards to be straight :-). Anyway, here are my "clean and semi-shabby" cards for today. They were both made using Layers of Colors stamps, except for the sentiments.

This uses LOC Nature Walk and GKD Nana's Needlework Sentiments. The papers are GKD Lemon Drop and Basic Grey Nook & Pantry. This is a very unusual color combo for me: lemon yellow, melon and black.

Happy Moms day

This next one uses LOC Flutterescent set. The papers are scraps I've had for awhile. The card base is GKD Creme de Menthe. The sentiment is made using SRM Stickers Express Yourself Mother's Day. The butterflies make this card perfect for the Our Creative Corner's current challenge.
