fall winter catalog cards

Hi there! I have 2 cards to share today. The first is a brayered sky technique card using the new in color inks baja breeze and pacific point. The green paper is kiwi kiss and the base of the card is pacific point. Brayered sky is easy in theory, but you really have to work at your ink application in order not to get harsh straight lines. I'm still not very good at it, but I think the card is pretty. DH says it's the prettiest card I've ever made (although I think he just wanted me to quit and give him some attention - LOL!)
The other card is made using mostly all new stuff. The stamps are from the new set called WOW flowers and see the scallop border along the bottom? If you know me, you know I LOVE to use the corner rounder to make scallops - well, rejoice Kim U. - there is now a punch for that!! The scallop edge punch makes easier work of these borders by punching 5 bumps at a time! The papers used here are the new in colors Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red. What do ya think?
