Lovin' Elsie!

How cute is this Elsie "Betty Flowery" paper? It's so bright and cheery, I thought it was perfect with these little chicks from Penny Black. I have to admit, the 2 cards I made with it did not come easily tonite. I putzed around so long with them I started getting frustrated and wanted to chuck them in the circular file.I think it was the pressure of trying to come up with a card when my mojo is at ground zero, and I've done nothing but lay on a lawnchair on the beach all weekend! The large flower is from the sizzix "Large Daisy" die cut, covered in a pink polka dot paper from Eclectic Paperie. The cute little chick images were given to me by Joy and Daisy from Eclectic Paperie also.
I got the idea to punch holes in the scalloped edges from a scrapbook magazine. I think it makes your scallops look cute and lacy! The corners were done with a cuttlebug embossing folder and then sprayed with the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Terra Cotta) that I got from Wendy at CHA.

Great cards! The one with the white, lacy bottom is so intriguing. I want to touch it and open it, see how it works. Does it fold from the top and bottom? So cool!
