Simple card with 3D grass

This card is simple and sweet.
I handcut the dark green grass and also little smaller one from a patterned paper.Then with the dimensionals I added this 3D effect.then embellished with simple quilled flowers.Butterflies are from a tissue box(recycled).Added some pearls from pearl maker on butterfly.

Double swing/ flip card

As usual trying out new types of cards and my new set of cardstock and patterned papers.
Here is a flip card/double swing card.There are lovely instructional videos on youtube..only problem is all the measurements are in inches and I am not very nice in is fine for me.So I converted all the inches to cm and made this card.I have the measurements and if anybody wants it ..I can share it.
I used some scrap ribbon from a gift, brad,pearls and quilled heart to embellish the card..
Will try more and share soon
