Baby and Fall cards

I have two cards to share today. The first card is for the Hero Arts September challenge (Fall theme) and for CardPatterns #132.

The leaves were inked with orange, red and green shades of Distress Ink, misted lightly and stamped on a watercolour background. The background was stamped with a text stamp and then again with a swirl stamp. The swirls were gold embossed. I was planning to have the cream cardstock as the base, but forgot to open the card when I did the stitching, so I had the mat the whole thing on a green base. Thanks for looking!!

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps: Real Leaves LL684, Flourish Background (CG119), Seasonal Memories LL007; Distress Inks: Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Forest Moss, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany; Tim Holtz Sizzix scallop die; felt; velvet ribbon; Kaisercraft rhinestones; Dymo.

The second card is a welcome baby card and I will add the name to the card as soon as know what the little girl will be called. This card is for the Hero Arts September challenge (window card theme) and using the Color Combos Galore #208 colors (theme: use pearls).

First, the blue frame was stamped and clear embossed. The window was cut out and the inner frame was stamped on the inside of the card. The girl was stamped in the middle. The dots were stamped with white pigment ink and then I used Dimensional Pearls on each one to create the pearly background. The butterflies were stamped with blue pigment ink, clear embossed and lightly sponged. I added a printed transparency in the window. Here's a close up:
