Oh my Michelle, these are all so totally gorgeous! The fussy cutting you did on the first card is so well worth the time and effort, as those flowers are truly stunning as the focal point on this card! I so love your CAS style and each one of these cards is a work of art! Thanks so much for allowing me to be part of your amazing group. <3

Love the happy colors of this kit, and your cards are, of course, totally wonderful! I especially love the turquoise and orange combination. Yum!

Awe, Michelle, fussy cutting that gorgeous floral paper was genius! All four cards are gorgeous, and I look forward to Part 2. Now I'm eager to use my leftover supplies, too. It was a blast participating with you gals this month...such an inspiring group of stampers.

Always fun to see what you do with the kit, and this is no exception. Smitten with the first floral, love how you used those blooms! Just lovely.

These are all so gorgeous, Michelle! I always love your wonderfully clean and perfect designs. Beautiful job fussy cutting that floral design paper. The papers in Lindsey's kit were amazing and what a wonderful way to show that one off!

Lindsey said...

Michelle, each and every one of these is just perfect. I'll be pulling out every last scrap of paper I have to CASE them. You totally blew me away with your adore you card and how you trimmed the flowers out of the paper.

Jeanne J. said...

Hi Michelle! Beautiful clean designs. I love the way you contrast between the empty clean areas and the bright bold colors on the images. You have a wonderful eye for composition! It was brilliant to cut the pattern paper and make your very own floral arrangement too!

Kim Heggins said...

So many beautiful cards Michelle...just beautiful! Your designs are amazing, love the wonderful looks you created and your first card is stunning, what a beautiful bouquet!

Bobby said...

Fabulous cards, Michelle.

Joyce said...

Love all your beautiful creations, Michelle.

Michelle, first of all, I need a lesson on how to photograph cards from you. The photos are so clear, bright, and beautiful! Next, I just love your first card. Those flowers in the paper were so cute, I love how you chose to focus on them by cutting them out, what a fabulous idea! Next I think its great that we both choose the same grey striped paper to showcase the "hugs" cut out. Then the pineapple one is just too cute :) I'm partial to pineapples (to eat and because I went to hospitality college!).

All such beautiful CAS designs Michelle. Love the very first card and how you cut the flowers out of the paper. I think I have enough left to CASE some of your cars!
