Again, very inspiring cards. I like how you off-set the notebook stamp card, so it made a more outstanding statement. Love how vintage it looks, and elegant as well. Cute strawberry card, and the use of color in your strawberry card is one I need to work on. Thanks for sharing.

The embossing on your first card is amazing, reminds me of Ostrich leather. It could almost be a masculine card except for the beautiful doily and the bow. The second card is also fantastic, a perfect match between the stamps and the DP.
