Glitz Summer Cards

It's so hot here all I can think about is summer. So rather than fight it I decided to make two different summer cards with different styles. I started off with the Kismet Titles Cardstock Stickers. I love how large this "Always Be Yourself" sticker is on my card. What a great, easy way to whip together a quick card. I wanted this card to have a 4th of July feel without really saying it.

For my second card I wanted to use those bright fun colors that seem to scream summer. I've been eyeing this super cute distressed couture flower.
I love those teeny alphas! So great. I hope you are all enjoy your summer ... it sure is hot here.

Always Be Yourself Supply List:
Patterned Paper: Kismet Ledger
Sticker: Kismet Titles Cardstock Stickers

Thank You Supply List:
Patterned Paper: Maya Polka

Both cards are just lovely. I love the bold sentiment on the first card with fabulous stitching.
As for the second card, I love the gorgeous print, and how you dress it it up with a simple ribbon and sentiment. Lovely!!!
