A guest design spot!

I was selected to be a guest designer for Mari Ko Creations!

I was sent some really beautiful images to have a play with...
The first card is made using "fall floral coffee" - 

I coloured the sweet image with my alcohol markers,
adding a strip of corrugated card for the middle section of the cup. 
I fussy-cut the flowers and leaves, and popped them on 3d foam. 
Some pretty papers and dry embossing, finished this card, along with a few
punched butterflies. 
The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card. 

I would like to add this card into the following challenges: 

Alphabet challenge - nature - 12 Oct
Cute card thursday - autumn - 4 Oct
Crafty creations - atg - 9 Oct

The second card I made, uses the image "Apple cider and you"
(another beautiful image to work with.)
I embossed and hand-cut a frame, to fit around the sentiment - 
which I printed directly onto the card.
(This set comes with both the image and the sentiment.)
After cutting out the image, I coloured it with alcohol markers and 
and raised it a little on 3d foam. 
I matted the frame, and inked the edges, finally adding a punched butterfly. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty catz - colours of autumn - 4 Oct
Creative knockouts - atg - 4 Oct
C.R.A.F.T - autumn / weather - 4 Oct
Little miss muffet - atg - 4 Oct

Both cards are beautiful, but I especially love the coffee cup one. All the textures and layers make it so interesting.
