Cards ... and MORE CARDS!!!

The past couple of days, I have really been in the groove for creating cards and here are a few of them - sketches are from

The first card is MCM#72 and I used Kraft cardstock with MME's Stella & Rose.  The ribbon is from StampinUp! and I made the flower with some left over scraps.
This card is using a variety of scraps as well as StampinUp! card stock (don't you just {heart} the green????)

MCM #74  For this card, I used Authentique's Uncommon with grey baker's twine.  Card stock is again from StampinUp!

This is MCM #75 and for this card, I machine stitched around the border while placing some of the elements right up to the edge.  I really liked how this card turned out!  Stamp is from a gal pal of mine who designs for Authentique and is an overall cutie pie from NM.  Kinda cool that I used balloons on this as Albuquerque, NM is host to the largest balloon festival ever!  Anyway, I used Kraft card stock and Lime Twist.


And finally MCM#76 - the challenge was to use any design but to use ribbon within the design.  I tried to do something different by threading the ribbon - I think I need to work on this technique a bit.  But overall, I'm happy with the look:
