  1. Nikki it's so amazing how you can use three colours in such different ways because both of your cards are soooo different from each other.
    I'm loving that big felty flower :)

  2. Wow I love both cards Nikki. You've really done a lovely job of combining these colours. Beautiful big blue bow too :)


  3. While that big red flower is pretty, I'm with you on the birdcage! That is amazing! I would never thought of combining the two sets and you've done it beautifully! Beautiful bow too!

  4. There is nothing "blah" about your first card, Nikki - it is lush! LOVE the flower, and how you used the colours. I do think you nailed it with your second card; love a birdcage, and the balance of colour is perfect! Beautiful card. xx

  5. Nikki both are great! Love the combination of the foliage with the bird cage - adds so much atmosphere! And that felt flower is just knock out gorgeous!!!xxx

  6. Def love your 2nd attempt, didn't know that 'Aviary' could lok so classy. Just stunning!!!!

  7. Both of your cards are fabulous, Nikki. The sympathy card is my favourite though; the bird cage with the flowers is inspired and I love the pearl details and embossing.

  8. Just spent some time looking at all your wonderful creations .... but your Aviary & Love and Sympathy card is so beautiful I just had to stop and leave a comment. I just recently bought both of these stamp sets and am greatly inspired by this card. You've got a special talent and I'm so thankful that you're sharing it with us!
