I used the swirly flower stamp...I loved it!

Here is my first card: it is a sympathy card.

I used my lilac cardstock, I cut out the digi stamp to cut the leaves and the center out only...then the other to use on the card...I colored them with my water color pencils. Then I used popped up dots for the first one then I put the other one that I took cuts off and then to make it look realistic and pasted the leaves and the center...then the center got stickled after i popped dot it and then put on one of my sentiments I wanted on it and then embellish the heart with a sticky heart gem and voila! is pretty simple...

Here is my second card using the same stamp: it is a encouragement card.

With this card again I used my lilac cardstock...then I p dotted the digi stamp after I cut it out and colored with my water color pencils..then stickled the middle and bent the leaves a little then I put it on a left over doily I cut up since I ran out of lace ribbon..*need to get some*..hehe...then I cut up another darker purple cards and used that as a based for my sentiment (Verve) then popped dot it then sticked it on and voila...again another simple card.
