Birthday Flowers on Black!

I had been waiting for the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers stamp set to come back in stock...here's my first cards that I made...
 I sponged my pink and green colors onto cardstock, then stamped the flowers and stems onto the sponged areas, embossed with white embossing powder and cut out.  I tried to make them look a little "shaded"...but the end result didn't look as shaded as I thought it would be!

I stamped the background with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripes background stamp and used the Friendship Blooms stamp set for the sentiment.  I popped up the flower and part of the stem from the black panel, then popped up the black panel onto the card.  Here's a close up...

The second one, I simply used the remnants of what I didn't wind up using on the first one...yes this one was an afterthought...kind of nice when you have enough to make a second one!
I coupled it with another Simon sentiment and some striped paper.  I also popped up this one, here's a close up...
OK...such fun...this Spring Flowers set is SOOOOOO PRETTY...will be making more with this set!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
