Mother's Day cards from card kits

I made up these two card from card kits that I have on hand from a while back.  For both of these, I cut the decorative paper twice - once vertically, once horizontally though I did angle the second one a bit which created a different effect.  The pieces are glued to the layer leaving a bit of room between them and all around the edges then it is glued to the coordinating card front.  Both of these have layered greetings created from round digital images.  The round greeting image is one I found on The Spruce.  I added a silk flower and some leaves with a sequin and brad to the one on the left which I had laser printed as is. On the right hand one, I digitally added a little flower digital image from Meljens Designs before laser printing and watercolouring it.  I sponged both with a bit of colour before layering them onto coordinating scalloped circles which I cut using Nestibilities.  I added dots on the pink one using a silver gel pen.  Cards from kits is always very quick because part of the work is already done!!  Nice to have a few of those on hand.
