Karen Burniston Thanks and Thinking of you

Alicia with a couple of cards for you today.  I pulled out my stash of backgrounds to accent this beautiful Tutti Designs Oriental Screen die.  I layered the die on a same size background.  I used a Karen Burniston Greetings die cut sentiment in the same card stock as the card base.  I layered it on top of two layers of Memory Box Stitched Rectangle dies, some ribbon, a flower and pearls.

For my second card I used a purple palette and a different sentiment but essentially the same card.
