Convention Inspiration

I got in late last night from Utah. The Stampin' Up! convention was a blast! I found it very motivating, inspiring, and knowledgeable. I went with some of the ladies from the Nacho Average Stampers and we had a wonderful time!
For the top card, I did use a download I found on the Internet. I printed it on card stock. I liked the yellow in the bird and the green foliage. So, I Incorporated those colors in my card. I added some Daffodil Delight ribbon, yellow rhinestone brad, and some Certainly Celery stamped piece. I have a new 'love' for the music wheel!
For the second card, I tried a technique everyone has seen on the Internet, but with a twist. I made my flower from a polyester material and organza. However, I didn't use a flame to 'melt' the edges, I used my heat gun. It's a bit safer, and has better control over the 'melting' of the fabric.
Thanks for looking and please post a comment, they always make me smile!
