Enjoy the Journey & Party Time Cards for Quick Quotes September Challenge

Good morning!  I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday weekend.  I know it went by way too fast! Alicia posting some inspiration for our September Challenge.  The theme this month is Feature Embellishments.  I took a cue from Martha Lucia and used lots of different embellishments.

On my first card, I used brads, twine, and a button with floss.  Not to mention the die cuts I created with all the great prints from The Earth, Wind and Fire collection only available at the Quick Quotes Private Reserve and Mini Reserve. Like, Martha I used some stamping on my card.  As always, I inked all my edges with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks.

My second card has a more feminine feel with some flowers and bling added.  I inked the edges of my flowers for more dimension.  I used plenty of punches and die cuts on this card as well.  I also stamped and embossed the clock face and sentiment.
