Mother's Day cards reusing calendar photos

Both of these cards feature my sister's photography!!  She creates 4" x 6" calendars every year that feature her photos and I always get one for Christmas which sits on my desk all year long.  These photos are both from one of her flower ones from several years ago.  I trimmed the photos from the calendar pages and mounted them to coordinating cardstock layers which I had embossed with border embossing folders (SU).  I used the coordinating border die to cut the bottom edge of the pink one.  I could have done the same on the other but I had not left enough room to make that work.  I added coordinating ribbon across this layer gluing the ends to the back with double sided tape.  I added a little sponged tag greeting on the blue one with a silver brad and tied on a piece of white fiber which I tied in a bow.  On the left hand one, I used a punched greeting created using a digital frame (SU) with a font greeting in the center.  I punched a circle to fit the circle size and sponged some pink ink into the center after placing the hole over it.  I placed the punchie over this area and sponged green ink all the way around the edges.  I added some clear rhinestones over the circle then mounted the greeting over the ribbon using 3D foam tape.  I glued these large elements to coordinating card fronts.  Love how these turned out!!
