Five new cards

 I've had such fun the last few days making some new cards
Usually it takes me days or weeks to make one card
Making cards quickly may be a new habit...
I hope so!

For this card I pieced scraps and then cut out with a heart diecut.
Forever Friends The Good Life Universal Embossing Folder
for the cream vertical strip.
I made this card for my niece her new fiance.
Spellbinder's filigree square
the Cuttlebug, Disney embossed Heart Frame.
Double Do alphabet letters
This new Flouishes mannequin and sentiment stamp is so cute.
The background pattern pieces is a Stampin 'Up stamp
I love the subtle softness of this butterfly card.
The Marianne diecut butterfly is a favourite of mine
This little basket diecut is new to me. I love it.
Added a Marianne bird diecut and some purchased flowers.
Cuttlebug embossing folder used for the purple background.
