Exchange cards which feature flower images, beautiful background paper and lacy borders

These two cards are for my card exchange partners for this month.  I chose two flower images from UNIKO and created two similar looking cards.  For the card on the left I used a large purple envelope, created a white card to fit in it and added a purple layer.  I added a piece of beautiful paper to the right hand side and then an embellished border on the right hand side.  The border was created from white cardstock which was punched with a MS lacy border punch, scored with three lines on my score tool and then had a row of pierced holes on the left using my pattern tracing wheel.  I adhered it over the edge of the paper using double sided tape.  I watercoloured the image, added clear glitter over the coloured border and added it to my card front using 3D foam tape.  
I repeated the sketch for the card on the right.  I used real lace and ribbon to create my border but other than that it evolved in the same way.  They are off to my partners!!        Therese
