CPS sketch and a Flower Soft border

First up, I want to share my card for Card Positioning Systems blog for this week. 
Gina K, designer Melanie Muenchinger is our sponsor.

The set I played with is designed to be used with Spellbinder Nestabilitie shapes. I did not have the shape for this particular stamp but I thought it was fun to show that you could use it anyway. I stamped it with white ink and embossed it with white embossing powder on a kraft colored paper. 
The set includes several shapes with sentiments and what is additionally cool is the shapes can be used with or without the sentiments.

And, the Flower Soft team is having a challenge this week to create a border and to accent it with Flower Soft.  I used the wonderful Sage Ultra Fine Flower Soft. 

The little flower border is cut with my Cricut Expression using a Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art cartridge.  I just added punched out small circles of cardstock and covered the circles with the Sage Flower Soft. The sentiment is a rub-on by EAD Designs/Paper Smooches.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Beautiful cards, Linda! I love the colors you have chosen for both cards and I like the shabby elegance of the first one with its beautiful framed sentiment. But I totally love the color blue so my secret fave is the second one :-)
