Today is your day!

Hello my friends! Hope you all are having a great Monday!!
Today I have a couple of projects to share with you. I created these for "World Card Making Day" for Latina Crafter. Both cards used the set "Hoy es tu dia"

This card is super cute and easy to make. The sentiment says "Wishes of Happiness", what I love most about this card is the background, I created it with Washi Tapes, the flowers were white, so I colored them with Copic Marker R24, then added pearls.

 lckit7

This card is also one of my favorites, another CAS one. This card is 4" square. I die-cut the Patterned Paper using Square Nestabilities, then I embossed a white panel and added the PP pieces. The sentiment was die-cut, embossed and stenciled. I created a triple bow with Twine., then added a button and a pearl.
