  6. Beautiful cards. I have this set but have never used the thin stripe like you did. I love the yellow and black together and I like how you stamped it on the pale yellow on the second card. TFS

  11. Love how you paired the plaid with the flowers. I am such a gingham and plaid person, too much to be real! And I adore both your cards. They are so bright and summery! Have a lovely day! xx Ankita

  12. Fabulous cards! What a difference the yellow card stock makes. I have to say, the sunflower card stole my heart. I love sunflowers and I love that sentiment. And I really love the plaid on the yellow card stock. 💛🖤💛
