May club cards

I posted the Disney layout for club already but am just posting the card selection.  I needed to design the final card last night and was leaning towards a masculine card since I don't do too many of those... and I wanted to teach a technique that maybe my "regulars" hadn't tried yet.  This is what I came up with for this month:

first:  my masculine card- perfect for Father's Day.  Used the puddle pad technique shown here with colors Cranberry, Desert Sand and Smokey Plum... I love the background paper sooo much that I didn't want to cover up too much of it.  I didn't take a photo of the inside but a sentiment from the June SOM was used inside.
The second card uses a color scheme and general layout that I saw on Nichol Heady's blog last week (I'm in a hurry but will post the link this week to the card I saw).  Colors:  Sunflower, Sweet Leaf and Desert Sand with the "With Love" stamps and some glitz glitter and antique copper bitty brad.  A little band of vellum was added (as I was sort of following Nichol's card and she used vellum)- but honestly- it barely shows in the photo.
Lastly- the final card.  It uses some Topstitch paper ( I have TONS!).  I used my cricut Once Upon a Princess cartridge to cut the scallops, which are also pop dotted.  The ribbon is Stampin Up (yes I'm using SU ribbon... my club members are my friends and they buy from lots of places... club is the one time where I use contraband products on my projects- this ribbon was something I'd received free during sale-a-bration last year and it matches sweet leaf PERFECTLY) 

I also used our Antique Copper mini medley( photo corners in the photo) to top off the card... it's really cute In real life!  I had ordered about 13 Antique copper mini medleys just for the ribbon slides and now have all the other supplies left from the kits!   Well that's it today- but stop in tomorrow because I've already scheduled a post showing some projects made with my new cricut!
