Cards - Snobby Walrus September kit

With all the papers and embellishments in the September kit from Snobby Walrus Paper Crafts, I had plenty left for cards (or more layouts...). BTW - this kit had sold out in pre-orders & subscriptions, and they've just restocked a very limited amount of additional kits - get it while you can, because they will soon be gone.

This first card features flowers punched from the packaging from the Prima flowers. The journaling tag was also included in the kit, and even though I loved it, I just couldn't make it work with the themes of my layouts, so I had to include it here (can't let scrappy goodness go to waste!)

As my friend Erin pointed out, this tea-cup was begging to be cut out and used somewhere. I love the little tea bag tag. ;)

After I took the first picture, I went back and added glossy accents to the tea cup - I couldn't resist!

For this card I punched butterflies from the My Mind's Eye paper and from the Prima packaging. I included another of the yummy journaling tags on this, as well as a test snippet of the lace coated with Glimmer Glam. (It worked perfectly, but it wasn't the look I wanted for the whole card.)

I got to use up more of the great cut off strips from the Sassafras Lass papers on these cards, which made me happy. They were too cute to just toss in the recycle bin.
