Cards for my exchange group!

I created these two cards for my card exchange group for this month.  I had a few extra images left over from this class sitting on my desk so I used them for these cards.  I love this gift wrap/decorative paper!!!  For the card on the left, I glued my decorative paper to a dark blue card front and added a layered image of fall leaves (Anne's Cards) which was watercoloured and layered onto a coordinating blue cardstock.  I layered an oval watercoloured laser printed greeting over a blue green oval punchie (SU) and adhered it over the bottom edge of the image.  
For the card on the right, I glued the decorative paper to my card front and found that it was just a bit short on the right hand side so I decided to add some bling.  I coloured some clear rhinestones using alcohol ink in Butterscotch and glued them in place once they were dry.  That worked!! I layered my laser printed greeting (SU) to an orange rectangle which I created by butting two cardstock scraps to each other, taping them together and then trimming to size.  I left some space on the right hand side and punched little stars out on that side.  The stars did not show very well so I backed them with a navy scrap before I glued my image to the card front.  I had two little rhinestones leftover from my strip so I coloured them with Sharpies and added them to my greeting.  I then glued my little star punchies to my card front around my greeting.  Adds a bit of texture to the background!!  
These are off to my partners!!
