Marsh Silhouettes & Lily of the Valley - A Mark's Finest Papers Bonus

Are you ready for another release from Mark's Finest Papers?  I am so excited for you because I am really enjoying all these to be released sets.  Talk about fun, this is serious fun!  I'm kicking off this post with a look at a new Mark's Finest Papers set called Marsh Silhouettes.  I wanted a soft and understated card and so I used the single cattail image with a sympathy sentiment.  I cut up my focal image into six equal pieces and sponged each edge to soften and imitate the look of tiles.  How did I do?  Do you get tiles from this?

My next card comes from the mini set being released this month called Lily of the Valley.  I was immediately drawn to this set because these are the birth flowers for the month of May and my daughter's birthday is this month.  For this card I stamped the lilies and then cut them out.  I used one of the four sentiments in the bottom left hand corner.  I then rounded a couple of corners and pierced three rows under the lilies.

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to come back later as we begin May's Blog Hop Release for Mark's Finest Papers.

2 beautiful cards - like the CAS look of the second but the tiles add something extra on the first too!

Toni, both cards are stunning! OH yes, you definitely hit the mark with the tiles. You have inspired me to try this! Did you sponge your edges with the soft suede?
