TWO cards from ONE!

Hello All!
How is your week going?

Here are a couple fun cards I created by using the images
from a card I received in the mail from one of the companies we contribute to.

I love being able to do this but always forget to take a BEFORE photo ... sorry!  LOL


The image and sentiment on this first card came from the FRONT of the card I'm repurposing.  By using the Tutti Designs 'Scallop Stitched Nesting Squares' dies, I gave it a different look & appeal.

The designer paper comes from a very old (circa 2008) Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad
called 'Sultry' and the flowers are by Prima.  Nuvo white crystal drops was
used for my flower center.


For my second card, I have used the image that was INSIDE my
repurposing card which is basically the same image as the front
but just more muted in color.  To showcase this image, I chose the
Memory Box 'Wrapped Stitched Frames'.

I have used the same Basic Grey designer paper pack, added
prima flowers to the upper corner and my embellishment
is Poppystamps 'Musical Happy Birthday' die.

I have a few more cards in the set that was sent to me and the images on these remaining cards are reminiscent of images by artist Thomas Kinkade ... though they are not marked as such.  I will be making 'Two out of One' cards using those cards also, for my Spring show stash.

Challenges to share in:

 Thanks so much for stopping by today and,
As always . . .
