Baroque Motif x 2

Hi - hope everyone had a great weekend.
Here are 2 cards I made with a group of neighbours and friends last week.
In both cards we used the Baroque Motif stamp set - we all just love that swirl!
In the first one we used embossing powder - black on the white card and
white on the black card - it went everywhere - I think we need some practice!!!
The second was stamped on to card and then we added the Itty Bitty flowers
and rhinestones.

That's all for now - the washer is waiting to be emptied and refilled!!

Hope you had a fab day.
Here is the card I sent her.
Can you spot the deliberate mistake?
This should have been a double twist easle card but I got one side a bit wrong!!!
But I like the result - hope Sally-Jo did!!!
Here's the flat arty farty angle!

That's all for now - have a great weekend
