Well, hello my garden friends, Diane visiting with you today!  Don't you love flowers?  I know I do and when all these
flower dies started "popping up" in the Classy Cards 'n Such shop, I was super excited!!
Today I am showing you two alike, but very different cards using some of the

Cheery Lynn Designs build a flower and embellishment dies....
these dies contain numerous petals, bases
and leaves to build an endless "garden of flowers"
One of the easiest flowers to make is a Lily...goodness, there are so many colors of lilies
it is hard to choose one!!
Both flowers were "built" using the dies listed below:
The orange flower was colored with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers.
The colors used were Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, and Dried Marigold
Did you know that Classy Cards and Such has a wonderful marker club you can join to get all
the fab marker colors?  There are also 12 "new colors" you can preorder now!!
The Pink flowers were colored with Pan Pastels.
Both cards have the gorgeous Memory Box Quinn Flourish under the Lily
and the Spellbinders Classic Edges 2 for trim....
The paper used on the pink card is from Kaiser Craft called "The Lake House"
The paper used on the orange card is Graphic 45 Secret Garden.....the one in stock
is a bit different, but just as beautiful!!
A few other of my favorite products used are the
Cuttlehug  this is a "must have" in my opinion to cut the intricate dies...
you will be glad you bought it!!
Cheery Lynn Designs Tools  these also are very useful for the intricate dies....
I hope you enjoyed the Lilies and I will be back again soon with more creativeness!!

I am entering this in the Card A Day challenge "anything goes"

These lilies are scrumptious and your coloring of them is divine! Perfect cards to showcase them, too. Been checking out those Cheery Lynn dies after seeing your projects. Thanks for all the inspiration!
