A couple of girly makes...

I have made a couple of girly cards. This first one uses a pretty image from DigiStamp Boutique...

This is Florence and present, isn't she a cutie?
The 2 floral papers are from the collection 'Bonnets & Bowties' by Lili of the Valley & Nitwit.
The sentiment is taken from the middle of a cake stamp by Stampin Up ('bring on the cake' stamp set).
The embossing folder used here is Swiss Dots.
I added a flower using Die-namics flower and leaf trio die, and finished off with some flat back crystals.

I'd like to enter this card at:

On to my other card. This one uses an image from 2 Cute Ink...

This is Sweet Horse,  oh and she definately is a sweetie, don't you agree?
I printed her a few times, coloured and fussy cut, and then decoupaged so that she'd be more 3D.
I've used that Nitwit/LOTV paper pad again for this card too.
After sticking down the floral paper I die-cut a heart from the front of the card using the largest plain heart from Marianne's scalloped heart set. Then die-cut the scalloped heart so that I could frame the aperture.
The horse was then glued to the inside back of the card so that she would poke through the heart.
The flowers were all made using SU's boho blossoms punch.
The name was cut using Die-namics By The Letter dies, and the greeting was handwritten.
