Two New Cards For The Colour Of Fun!

Hello lovely peeps,
Today I have two new cards to share featuring Simon Says Stamp's new release
There are so many gorgeous goodies in this release it's hard to pick a favourite!

For my first card today I have featured the Explore Nature stamps and dies set and I wanted to try something a bit different with the leaves stamps so I embossed some onto vellum with white embossing powder, and also stamped some in white ink on vellum for a softer look, and then die cut them, & then started to create a flower with them.
The card I've used is Simon Says Stamps Khaki and I have randomly dotted some pearls around the flower and added a gorgeous Prima rose to the middle of my flower, and finished my card off with two little heart buttons. 
 Naturally I added a smidgen of glitter for that pretty sparkle :)
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Crafty Sentiments - bingo (stitching, pearls & glitter), Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - use pearls, Simply Paper Crafts - anything goes, Sister Act - anything goes,

 My next card today features Simon's new Birthday Circle die set and I created a quick and easy nestie card this time.
 I stamped some sprinkles from Simon's Cupcake Party stamp set in Sea Glass ink to match my card and again added a sprinkle of glitter.
 Apologies I can't remember who the paper is by I pulled in from one of Simon's lovely Card Kits.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
MAWTT - song lyrics (Happy Birthday To You),
 Please keep an eye on my lovely Simon teamies blogs as most of us are sharing creations with you today featuring the new Colour Of Fun collection.
That's it from me for tonight peeps, thanks for stopping by
