Unbelievable!! I've been trying for a week to show these cards. The three of us, the two Lindas and myself, made the 9 square on our Friday gathering. Actually it has been a couple weeks ago. The muted blue papers are pretty, but was so hard to match a bow! For this card I layered, stitched, the background papers. I gessoed the top square and distressed everything! 

The paper is glittered, but I still distressed the top square. Felt odd to do 'glitter & distress"! Like using the heart here. I did sent this off for Valentines day. 
This is the glittered paper too. But I think this is my favorite. Love the softness of the wreath and flowers. The wreath is a memory box die. 
Thanks for looking!

The Paper Smoochies, yes Paper Smoochies "Retro" die is my new obsession! Before we get started, here is a link to Paper Smoochies
Looks pretty much like a 'one time use' die. Oh no. It is not .
The 'happiness' card actually is for the church. It has an inspirational verse on the inside. 
This next one in the yellow, turquoise, and red has a distinct ethnic look. I put the layers down alternating direction of the arrows.
Finally, the reason I bought this was Jocelyn Olsons 'retro shaker'. Still obsessed with the shaker cards!
Thanks to all for looking and especially 'thanks' to Jocelyn, for this adorable card!!
