The bigger card is my entry for The Next Level challenge which was to create an aperture card and lollipop flowers. Although I've made lollipop flowers before I thought the video and tutorial were very informative. Didn't quite follow the instructions though, skipped the paint as being far too messy and not really necessary ;). The sentiment is a quote from Tina Chambers at Digital Scrapbook Place.
This little card was made with the leavings of the first card and other scraps. Sentiment is by The Angel Company.
