Two Cards with a Challenge or Two in Mind

This first card is very CAS for me and I really like how it looks. 

I have used the 'Live laugh and Love' word die. I have cut the word from a 
brightly coloured and white embossed background panel of roses that I made a card
out of back in July if your interested, just click on the link and it will show you
the card I made minus this die cut word.

I have glued the word in place and decided I didn't want much with it.
So I just added a copic coloured rabbit stamp (Purple Onion)

Here's a close up of the diet word, love the colours and the little rabbit
with his rainbow coloured t-shirt.

Here it is finished. Debating putting something in his hand, just cant decide
what at the moment, but I think its nice and CAS and cute as it is.

This next card is a few bits and pieces. The floral panel that is coloured
in pale pink and a darker pink for the main flowers, mid blue for the
smaller flowers and green leaves. A generous dose of Wink of Stella 
but it just doesn't show up in these photos.

I have dry embossed the white card base with one of the 3D embossing 
panel. Hard to see as its white and I did a fairly light emboss but it is
visible. I added a small blue panel behind the floral panel.

Before attaching the floral stamped panel I added a die cut flower petal
outline with a gem in the centre. Added the floral panel on top
then the silver mirror card 'Happy birthday'.

'Live Laugh Love' card the sentiment is from a heat embossed
background panel.

Such lovely cards Aileen, both of them! I do love how you made the first one, upcycling some leftover bits to create such a stunning sentiment. Also love how the shirt of that very cute little bunny, mimics the colours of the sentiment! Very cute indeed! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

Two more delights that have me smiling all over my face! Such lively colours on your die cuts and the wee bunny adds to the sweetness impact. I think he's fine just 'marching' along, but if you want to add a 'something', how about a cute little flower or heart? Your flowers on the second....beautiful!
