Color Cue {13} Challenge

I've been letting the current Color Cue colour combo sit with me for a while . . . lots of ideas fluttered through my head.
Finally, these are two that I came up with . . . so far . . .

 I can't put down wPlus9's Poinsettia Patterns--I LOVE it!!  I heat embossed the pattern in white onto soft yellow.  I also used one of the small stamps from the set to create the brad for the flower.

For the second card, I used my new Kassie's Brocade embossing folder for this lovely grey panel--I LOVE the texture!!  The card base is PTI's Spring Moss colour--a bit washed out in this photo.  I used the "for you" and "MOM" stamps (from wPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes set) repeatedly to create a subtle background on the cardbase.
 Here's a close up of all the mixed textures--embossed panel, lace, stitching and soft pearls!!

I'll being doing another post right after this one showcasing an Easter Egg shaped card that also features the Poinsettia Patterns set--so stay tuned!!

Have a great weekend!!  I'm going to try enjoying the somewhat warmer weather and hopefully some crafty time too!!

Thanks 4 your time!
