July Club cards.. round one

Here are the first two cards I've designed for my local club this month which is this coming weekend.

I will post the last card and the layout tomorrow (the members choose to make either 3 cards or a layout and they pick each month based on which project they think they'll use). I had so much fun designing these cards last night while I was on a conference call! The first uses a color combo I don't believe I've ever used before- Sorbet, Ocean, Sunflower and white. The ribbon is Chocolate. I stamped the flowers from the September '08 Stamp of the Month "Treasure Life" which I'm nearly certain it will be in the new Autumn/ Winter Idea Book since it was extremely popular last September. There are two similar stamps that are different sizes in terms of the flower shape- I used both of those to stamp the flowers and I used the bottom of the stems from those images to stamp the extra grass/ weeds around. {supplies: Cardstock: White Daisy, Sorbet, Ocean, Sunflower; Chocolate Ribbon Rounds; pewter brads; INKS: Black Stamp pad, Ocean stamp pad used with blending pen; Sorbet and Garden Green Markers, Treasure Life and Wonderful Charms Stamp Sets}
The second card idea was NOT my own- I saw this lovely grouping of cards on Karen Pedersen's blog back in May and saved the idea. I wanted to make my own version of her cute cards so I switched out the paper colors for a more "outdoorsy" look with the blue and green. The same color of buttons look great on either version! She did a better job of covering the black inked image but I'm still pleased with this card!
