Summer Fun cards

My dear friend Pam sent me some luscious citrus colored papers recently that I created with tonight. I am not sure of the brand(s) but do believe a few are SEI and DCWV. I just know that I had lots of fun using them!
My first card is for Caardvarks challenge from July's Sheetload of Cards issue. Have you seen this free ezine? If not you need to! There are lovely inspirations to be seen.
Not sure if the photo captures the butterfly to the fullest. I placed a large butterfly rub-on on the bottom and then cut out a smaller matching butterfly and folded the wings to give a little depth. No flat cards for me. :-)




My second card is for Card Patterns #23 sketch. There is a bonus sketch this week by Kris Swain. I am hoping to work on it tomorrow because I love the scallop circle she incorporated in it. :-)
This sketch includes a few layers which I love and a scallop edge.



Thank you for coming by!
