PPC-CC #4 & FTL 83

Another quick post as now it's no longer 1:00 AM but 1:12 AM!! Like I mentioned in my post from 12 minutes ago, I'm cutting it super close this week to challenge deadlines. These cards combined PPC-CC#4 and Clean & Simple's Fall to Layout #83. I just found my love for Not Quite Navy and realized that I only have about 4 sheets of it left. Yet another thing to put on my next order. I am quite happy with how the cards turned out because I got to use the new punch I got with the bird & branch. (Total side note: I'm so tired I typed "girl" when I meant to type "bird"...I know... What the heck right?) Now I know the flowers from the Pretties Kit don't look Lavender Lacey but I swear it is! I just dyed them using the ink pad. They were even darker when wet and when I went to dry them with my heat gun there was smoke everywhere! That same card also looks splotchy but it's because I sprayed some bling bling glimmer mist on there. After making a few cards using white as the base, I'm really loving how it looks and I think I'll be making more cards using that white base. If you're wondering what the heck white thing is under the Pretties flower on the left card, it's actually a leftover felt flower I had cut that was sitting on my desk for about 3 months. Ok 1:20 AM, time to hit the sack!!
