More Live Beautifully cards

Once again, playing with the Live Beautifully collection by CTMH.... be sure to snap it up when it is available as I'm pretty sure it will sell out!

I created a couple of cards and of course... included stitching and fussy cutting.  

First up, I fussy cut the flowers and that sentiment.  Yep, stamped the smile sentiment then fussy cut it :)  The flowers were mounted on foam squares for dimension.  I then added some gold gems for interest. 
The stamped sentiment will be available soon as well.  

I  used this sketch: 

My next card has a die cut flower and sentiment.  The flower die is a Maggie Holmes die.  The hello is from CTMH.  

Once again, adding some gold gems for interest. 

Both cards came from this inspiration:

Two beauties! Both these cards have Laurel written all over them. I like how you stamped then fussy cut the smile. It looks great. Lovely work!

Oops, thousand apologies, for the name boo boo, Laurel. I think my headache's affecting me more that I thought.
