"Tea for two" Card

Hi all, I created this card using the iris folding technique; it takes more time to make, but I adore working with Japanese paper, and I love the outcome of this technique. My best friend lived in Japan for 4 years, and she gave me a boxfull of japanese paper, so I am very lucky. I recently discovered lace, and I thought lace and tea went well together, so I made this flower ( very easy, just put a thread through it and pull); I love the quality of this lace and its yellowish color...The papers are from DCWV, a company I really like. The style is an easel card, which is probably my favorite. The buttons were an amazing b'day gift I received this summer. I did some distressed embossing around the edges. If I had to do this card over, I would use smaller buttons on the inside, and a thinner line of embossing powder....Tea pouch included in the price ! LOL...

"Girlie girl" card

Hi, I wanted to make a quick, simple, girlie card after making 3 manly, rather complicated cards. Also, I am trying to work quicker, and to be more organic in my way of making a card, less planning...So, I dont love this card, no focal point for the eye to rest on, but I did make it quickly, without thinking too, it was a good exercise...
