Ready made card fronts and a friendship card

A friend of mine donated these cards to be used in my cardmaking efforts.  They are A2 sized so presented a bit of a challenge when trying to refurbish them into the same size. 
I found place for a greeting on the first one.  I stamped the greeting on vellum, embossed it in gold and then punched it out with a circle punch.  I added a gold flower sequin with a small gold brad.  Afterwards, I decided to add some coral crochet thread which I wrapped around the layer slipping it under the greeting and tying it off to the left.  I glued this large focal element to the front of a brown card.  I was not able to find a way to embellish the other card front so I simply trimmed it smaller and also glued it to a brown card front.  The message is uplifting and positive!!!    Therese
